Clay soils exhibit generally undesirable engineering properties. They tend to have low shear strength which reduces further upon wetting or other physical disturbances. Hence, soil before construction by soil stabilization techniques. The main objective of this study is to investigate the use of glass and plastic waste powder in geotechnical applications to evaluate the effects of glass and plastic waste powder on Specific gravity test, Atterberg limits test, Compaction test, and CBR test. The owdered glass and plastic waste powder material is added to the soil in different proportions like 2%, 4%, 6%, 8% find the percentage of which the maximum soil strength is obtained. Also a comparative study on the properties of untreated clay soil and clay soil treated with glass and plastic waste powder was also done. The glass and plastic waste powder is effectively reduced and clay soil fit for pavement construction.
