Abstract

In India if look towards urbanization a trend of use of non-renewable products like plastic bottles, have been increased, but increase of the such product recycling or destroying is the main concern . PET bottles have the different factors such as, load capacity, reducing waste material, time of execution, cost, and flexibility. PET bottles have more compressive strength compared to some conventional building material such as brick. So we can easily replace conventional brick by PET bottles. In experimental study we found that the compressive strength of mixed soil having fine and coarse partical is greater the first class brick.

Keywords: PET bottles, sustainable development, urban wastage, compressive strength.
