Day by day our environment is polluted by large amount of plastic wastes. However there are several plastic waste recycled & reused, they are not done effectively. In order to prevent the Environment pollution caused by plastic waste, we decided to utilize it effectively in the manufacturing of paver blocks. Large amount of plastic wastes have been collected from several places such as tourist and public places etc. High density polyethylene bags are collected, cleaned and used as a replacement for cement in the manufacturing of Paver Blocks. The molten state of plastic is added with Fine aggregate (sand) at different percentages to obtain high strength Paver Blocks that possess good thermal properties and Compressive strength. The plastic waste is available in large quantity and hence the cost factor comes down. Different shades can be obtained by mixing coloring agents such as red oxide. Hence in this Project an attempt is made to study regard the properties of Paver blocks. This is manufactured using plastic waste. Hence the project is helpful in reducing plastic waste in a useful way. In this project we have used plastic waste in different proportions with quarry dust, coarse aggregate and ceramic waste. The paver blocks were prepared and tested and the results were discussed.
