Nowadays, there is a large amount of solid waste that is not decomposed properly. Mainly the non-degradable wastes, that is hard to manage in the landfills that reduce the lifespan of the landfill. Due to this crisis we can also observe that the roads around us are not in suitable manner to ensure safety. So, we mainly thought of using the waste materials as replacements in an asphalt mixture. We choose plastic as a replacement of bitumen, fine glass powder as a replacement of fillers and crumb rubber as a replacement of coarse aggregate. As a result, we choose drip pipes as a plastic, beer bottles as glass and crumb rubber. In terms of total weight of bitumen 7.5% of plastic was used as replacement, similarly in terms of total weight of filler and aggregate 15% of glass and 12.5% of crumb rubber were used as a replacement respectively. With the combination of all three replacements an asphalt mixture was prepared to conduct the Marshall Stability test to analyze whether it is applicable for road construction.
