Abstract: Now a day's use of plastic is increases enormously but it has very low biodegradability and presence in large quantities. Thus best solution for disposing of plastic waste is recycling of it to produce new materials like concrete or mortar because of cost effectiveness and ecological advantages. Thus experimental study was carried out to use low linear density Polyethylene (LLDPE) as a replacing material (mineral admixture) for cement in concrete. compressive strength and split tensile strength of concrete were determined in laboratory. low linear density Polyethylene with percentage addition of 0, 3,6,9 and 12% by weight of cement is replaced and mechanical properties were studied. all specimen were tested after a curing period of 7, 21 and 28 days. The result indicated that, the use of low linear density Polyethylene in concrete increase both compressive as well as split tensile strength.
