In general Fibre Reinforced Concrete (FRC) can improve the strength properties of hardened likewise this investigation is to find the mechanical properties of Hybrid Fibre Reinforced Concrete (HyFRC) with the combination of Recycled Polyethylene therephthalate (RPET) and steel (ST) fibres. The M25 grade of concrete was designed by using the codal provisions of IS 10262 strength,Tensile strength and Flexural Strength of specimens were found out for the various mix proportions of Hybrid Fibre Reinforced Concrete RPET.75ST0.25, RPET0.5ST0.5, for 1.5%. Totally 36 number of specimens were casted, out of which nine numbers of control and twenty seven were hybrid fibre reinforced concrete specimens. From this the optimum value of hybrid fibre was found as combination of RPET0.25ST0.75 fibres. Because of the steel fibre the optimization value of the concrete get increase and the RPET fibre gives a little participation in strength. The compressive strength of the HyFRC can improve 19% than the control mix, the tensile strength of the HyFRC can improve 10% than the control mix and the flexural strength of the HyFRC can improve 13.80% than the control mix
