This report presents the analysis of soil using Eggshell powder and Fly ash in soil stabilization for different engineering properties. As solid waste disposal being a major environmental problem, because of unavailability of lands for disposal. Due to fast growth in construction industry, land is not available as per construction requirements. For dealing with these problems, solid waste can be incinerating to reduce its volume by 80%, and further can be used as soil stabilization material. It enhances the soil properties and solves the problem of solid waste disposal in city. This work deals with estimation of engineering properties of soil i.e., maximum dry density vs. optimum moisture content. Experimental work shows that use of 3% E.S.P & 15% Fly ash by weight of soil can improve the properties at larger extends. The foundation of a building or road is an essential part for effective transmission of load to the subsoil present beneath it.
