For quite fifty years, world production of plastic has continued to rise. Some 299 million plenty of plastics were created in 2013, representing a forty five increase over 2012. Recovery and employment, however, stay meager, and countless plenty of plastics find yourself in landfills and oceans annually. in step with the world organization Environmental Program, between twenty two a requirement forty third of the plastic used worldwide is disposed of in landfills, wherever its resources area unit wasted, the fabric takes up valuable area, and it blights communities. sick plastic from the waste stream for employment or for combustion for energy generation has the potential to attenuate these issues. However, abundant of the plastic collected for employment is shipped to countries with lower environmental regulation. And burning plastic for energy needs air emissions controls and produces dangerous ash, all whereas being comparatively inefficient. Plastic is flexible, light-weight, flexible, wet resistant, strong, and comparatively cheap. Those area unit the engaging qualities that lead United States, round the world, to such a voracious appetency and over-consumption of plastic merchandise. what is more solely restricted studies are meted out in Asian nation on the utilization of waste plastic(PET) for the event of high strength concrete with addition of polypropene fibers.Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) is sometimes used for effervescent nutrient and water bottles. the development business is in need of finding price effective materials for increasing the strength of concrete structures. during this paper deals with the chance of exploitation the waste PET bottles and polypropene fiber size of fibre supplementary in to the concrete with one hundred and twenty fifth, and 1.5% PET bottle fibers. Cube specimens of three numbers every were forged cured and tested twenty eight days strength. Experimental investigation was done exploitation M25 combine and tests were meted out as per counseled procedures by relevant codes. The non harmful tests(Rebound Hammer And unhearable Pulse Velocity) of concrete has been studied during this analysis were done and also the results were compared with management specimens.
