Now-a-days usage of plastic and generation of plastic refuse increases day by day, so necessary steps should be taken to reduce pollution due to plastic waste. In this paper, plastic refuse was used as a fine aggregate in some percentage with Manufactured sand (M-sand) instead of river sand to reduce the impact of pollution caused by plastic refuse. Since the demand for natural sand has increased drastically. The replacement of river sand by plastic refuse should not affect the strength as well. In this way, it is easy to manage the demand of natural sand and pollution due to improper disposal of plastic refuse. In previous studies, there was a strength reduction in the concrete as the addition of plastic refuse increases. The addition of plastic refuse in the form of pellets has increased the strength of concrete as plastic pellets are having more density than raw plastic refuse. The addition of plastic pellets of 4% has achieved a maximum compressive strength, tensile strength and flexural strength of 28 N/mm2, 1.96 N/mm2 and 2.75 N/mm2 respectively at the end of 28 days curing.
