Abstract
India is a developing country were construction of roadways and building plays a vital role in overall development. As the demand of paver block is increasing day by day for construction of roadways the requirement is very high and it is necessary to find sustainable alternative to concrete paver as a paver block. The materials used for plastic paver blocks are polythene bags, steel slag, sand with a proper mix proportion. The polythene bags are replacement of cement; steel slag are added as concrete aggregate; sand is used as a fine aggregate. The mix proportion ratio is 1:1:2 and the grade of concrete is M25 at the compressing strength of 25MPa.The paver block specimens of 18 numbers were cast cured an tested blocks for both conventional concrete and replacement of concrete for about 7, 14 and 28 days for compressive strength. In this work it is found experimentally that plastic paver block gives better strength as compare to conventional paver block. The replacement of plastic paver block is light weight with high effective strength durability and be used in parking sector, reduce the environmental pollution. Hence, the project is helpful in reducing plastic waste in a useful manner. In this project we have used plastic waste with a steel slag in a different proportions
