Abstract : Plastics are the non-biodegradable materials which create significant economic and environmental problem. Nowadays, plastic wastes are used in the construction of roads along with bitumen to improve the strength. This process helps us to reduce the waste plastics in our environment and the overall use of bitumen. Low density Polyethylene is light weight material, cost effectiveness and good strength. Green sand is a type of foundry sand, which contains a high quality silica, bentonite clay, pulverized coal and water and used as a fine aggregate. In our work, apart from the use of low density polyethylene, green sand is also used as filler for aggregate for public road works. These mixture which helps to increase the permeability and refractoriness of the overall compound. This will help in binds the aggregates to enhance the cohesion to mass and water-proofing nature to the mixture.
