This waste materials cause disposal crises and thereby contri-buting to the environmental problems.So the use of waste in concrete has been done for safe and economical disposal of waste materials. The use of waste materials not only saves natu-ral resources and dumping spaces but also it maintains a clean environment.Partial replacement of waste materialin concrete is done to achieve the desire properties of concrete such as strength, durability and workability. This paper gives idea about various waste materials used in concrete and their effects on various properties of concrete.
