Ceramic waste is comes under a construction and demolition (C&D) waste which contributes 54% of C&D waste which is generated by construction practice, transportation damage, Dispatch activity, inadequate raw material etc. Fly ash is a waste generated by thermal power plants is as such a big environmental concern. The investigation reported in this paper is carried out to study the effect of ceramic waste based geopolymer concrete on mechanical properties of ceramic waste based geopolymer concrete, so as to provide an environmentally consistent way of its disposal and reuse. The ceramic waste in geopolymer concrete mix is replaced from 5 to 30 % by interval of 5 %. This provides an environmental friendly method and solve the problem of disposal of ‘ceramic waste’ up to some extent.
