The researchers are doing great efforts to find the replacement of sand in both concrete as well as mortar, they are finding ways to use by-products or waste product. The use of concrete and mortar involves the consumption of a natural resource that too only non-renewable resource except water. The focus of this study is that the use of two waste/byproducts as the partial replacement of sand in mortar. In the present study, the mixture is taken as (1:3). The partial replacement of sand is done in three different percentages (10%,20%,30%). In the first mix, 10% of sand is replaced with 5% each of sawdust and brick dust. Similarly, in the next two mixes, 20% and 30% of sand are replaced. For all the mix flexural strength test is carried out at 7, 14 and 28 days. Flexural strength increases to 20% and decreases afterwards. Higher flexural strength is at a 10% replacement of sand.
