Abstract
Disposal of waste plastic is an act of threatening and is becoming a serious problem globally due to their non-biodegradability and toxicity. These wastes are not disposed scientifically & pose a threat causing ground-water pollution. In the present paper we have presented techniques to use plastic waste for construction purpose of roads. In conventional road making process, bitumen is used as binder. Such bitumen can be modified with waste plastic pieces and bitumen mix is made, which can be used as a top layer coat. Plastics roads mainly use plastic carrybags, disposable cups, and bottles that are collected from garbage dumps. This waste plastic modified bitumen mix shows better binding property, stability, density and is more resistant to water.
