Abstract: The composition of waste is different in every country where plastic plays a major role in environmental pollution. Enormous amount of plastic waste has been generating every day globally. Accumulation of plastic in environment, improper handling, land filling and decomposing causes pollution which effects human habitat and wild life. As we know that a construction material should have more life span, so we can use plastic, since plastic is a versatile and long-lasting material. The main theme of this paper is to reduce environmental pollution by recycling the waste Low-Density Polyethylene (LDPE) plastic bags and decrease plastic waste. In this paper the LDPE plastic bags are recycled and used as total replacement for cement to prepare plastic paver bricks. There will be no economic problems as waste plastic is used. Compressive strength, melting point and water absorption and environmental factors has been found out for the results to avoid the effects on environment. The results of the paper shows that LDPE plastic can be recycled which helps to reduce the environmental pollution and carries socioeconomic factors.
