Clay brick is the first man made artificial building material and one of the oldest building materials known. Its widespread use is mainly due to the availability of clay in most countries. Its durability and aesthetic appeal also contribute to its extensive application in both load bearing and non-load bearing structures. Now a day’s most of the companies generates wastes at the end of making final product which are harmful to the society and environment. Recycling of such waste as raw material alternatives may contribute in the exhaustion of the natural resources; the conservation of not renewable resources; improvement of the population health and security preoccupation with environmental matters and reduction in waste disposal costs. In this study an attempt has been made to manufacture bricks from the waste material mainly generated from aluminum industry and marble industry the effects of those wastes on the bricks are studied their effects on the bricks properties such as physical, mechanical properties have been reviewed by adding marble powder and aluminum powder individually, Compressive strength of the individual mix proportions shows better results, nevertheless it doesn’t show satisfactory by blending aluminum and marble powder but the bricks weight are reduced and found to be light weight
Keywords- Marble powder, aluminum powder, recycle wastes, performance, bricks
