The increase in population over the decades has resulted in a rapid increase in the need of goods of various kind and material, plastic being the most heavily used. The plastic bottles used in carbonated beverages, packaged drinking water bottles, jugs, etc. are made of PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) constitute of a very large proportion of plastic waste and is harmful for the environment for various obvious reasons. This project mainly concentrates on reusing of PET bottle waste as a partial replacement of fine aggregate in concrete. Fine aggregate is replaced with PET bottle shredding in 5%, 7.5%, 10%, 12.5%, and 15% and used to prepare M20 and M25 grade concrete mix with and without plastics and tests on concrete like slump, cube tests: compression test and flexural tensile strength test are performed to understand their behavior and usefulness as replacement.

Keywords- PET plastic, cement, fine aggregate, PET bottle shredding
