Since 2008-2012, world generated two sixty million tonnes of plastic waste and 2012-2015 it reached 298 million tonnes. Coming to the India sixty seven million tonnes of plastic waste generated per day, greater city like Hyderabad generated three thousand five hundred to four thousand tonnes per day and as per survey conducted by the municipal waste management India, average of 0.5 grams plastic waste generated by single person per day. Out of this only 25% to 30% of plastic wastes recycle effectively, remaining seventy five percentage of plastic waste leads to create land pollution because whatever the plastic waste generated it takes three fifty to four hundred years decompose in soil. Finally it leads to create environmental pollution and in the case of 25% to 30% effective recycle materials also expose some toxic element in to atmosphere so this kind of problems may resolve by Design and Estimation of Eco Friendly Rigid Pavement with Geo Plastic Bricks. In this the geo plastic bricks are arranged in first half of surface course from bottom with help of brick paver. The design eco friendly geo rigid pavement with geo plastic brick procedure like as our conventional design of rigid pavements as per IRC provision only. Here we are following IRC-58, IRC-SP 20-2002, and IRC-15-2002 code books for design of eco friendly rigid pavement. This is all most equal general design of rigid pavement but after getting the thickness of rigid pavement we are placing the geo plastic bricks in first half of surface course, if we provide like this the total construction cost of rigid pavement get reduces but this techniques only suitable for in rural areas because no that much of heavy load acting on the pavement so it is in safe condition but if it also used in urban areas but we need apply precautions against failures and by using of geo plastic bricks in the first half of surface course we require lot of bricks to construct base course and here if we use one geo plastic brick 28 grams of plastic waste reuse effectively without any harmful effects. Finally the total cost construction of rigid pavement get decreases and lot of plastic waste reuse effectively, we will see this in the end this paper work.
