In the world construction, one material is used above all is concrete.Concrete is far more produced all over the world than any other man made material. It is incredibly versa-tile, and is used in almost all major construction projects. The amount and type of waste materials increasing because of in-crease in population.Many of the non-decaying materials remain present in environment for hundreds and thousands of years. 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.
