Concrete is widely used by entire world in the construction field. As depletion of river sand is being taking place due to urbanization and construction developments, this experimental work focused on using sustainable materials in the construction practice as well as reducing the usage of natural resources. Using glass waste as construction material, the place natural resource usage will be reduced. Another advantage is that greenhouse gases and dumping waste on open land have been reduced. The pollution levels coming out from concrete materials will be reduced. This experimental work focused on aggregate replacement with 10, 20, 30, and 40% of crushed glass. It was observed that durable and mechanical properties were increased with replacement of fine aggregate up to 30% in addition with super plasticizer Conplast SP430. The compressive strength was increased by 11.35%, tensile strength by 18.97%, and flexural strength by 20%.
