In concrete industry, the use of concrete solid wastes is becoming further common since it can minimize associated costs and environmental implications. The current research looks at how concrete performs when polypropylene (PP) plastic, produced from pollution garbage items, is used as a partially replacing for coarse aggregate (CA). The proportion of total PP (PPA) (0, 5, 10, 15, and 20%) as well as the water-cement ratio 0.45 of recycled household waste water, are the most important variables. Flow ability, hard porosity, maximum compressive strengths are all factors to consider, and economic feasibility are all discussed. The slump value grew when the proportion of PPA was raised, according to the findings. Compressive and cracking tensile strengths were increased in concrete containing 15% PPA. As a result, suggested to utilize more than 10% PPA in structural concrete, with either crushed stone or PP aggregate. The results showed that 15% is the best alternative to coarse gravel during terms of strength and durability, and hence PPA can be utilized as a partial replacement for coarse aggregate in concrete. To conduct studies to enhance the impact resistance of concrete by utilizing recycled water. Reducing the consumption of nonrenewable resources reducing greenhouse gas emissions and improving the strength and load capacity of industrial materials used in building research. Finally, employing non-biodegradable waste plastic resources to make green concrete will offer up new possibilities.
