Stabilization of soil is a research area that has not only troubled researchers but also kept them curious throughout the history of modern engineering science. Numerous methods have been tried to impart strength to a soil that may be used as a foundation or an underlying layer on a Highway. Soil, being a complex material in itself, becomes even more difficult to deal with when its bearing strength is low which not only puts the superstructure that is to be laid above it in danger but may also have long term consequences in terms of life and property. This paper aims at exploring the investigations and researches that have been done to improvise the soil properties by mixing it with varying percentages of waste materials. A wide range of waste materials have been used in soil stabilization in the industry and this paper will aim at reviewing them in general and wood sawdust ash and marble dust powder in particular.
