Abstract : The rapid growth in the construction industry and the resulting environmental issues due to improper waste management leads to the formation of new construction materials from waste and its residue. This paper is a review of different research approaches that employs waste materials mixed with fillers as construction materials. A refined analysis of construction materials derived from plastic waste in concrete along with sand, clay, sawdust, rice husk, and other fillers are detailed. The different processes involved in the development of materials along with their mechanical behaviour are being discussed. The application of different coupling agents along with plastic waste and fillers which indicates its future applications as a viable material in the construction industry are also explained in detail.
