The use of paper-mill pulp in concrete formulations was investigated as an alternative to landfill disposal. The cement has been replaced by sludge accordingly in the range of 5% to 20%by weight for M-25. By using adequate amount of the waste paper pulp and water, concrete mixtures were produced and compared in terms of slump and strength with the conventional concrete. The concrete specimens were tested in three series of test as compression test, splitting tensile test and flexural test. These tests were carried out to evaluate the mechanical properties for 14 and 28 days. As a result, the compressive, splitting tensile and flexural strength increased up to 5% addition of waste paper pulp and further increased in waste paper pulp reduces the strengths gradually.
