Experimental investigation an attempt has been made to find the suitability of the fluorescent tube light wastes as a possible substitute for conventional fine aggregate. In a district about40-60% of the fluorescent tube light are wasted due to various reasons. These wastes are not recycled at present. By utilizing this fluorescent tube light waste as a fine aggregate, safe disposal of waste materials can be achieved and construction costs are reduced. This investigation was carried out to evaluate the strength and durability properties ofM25 grade concrete with control specimen 10%, 20%, 30% replacement of fine aggregate with fluorescent tube light waste. Among the strength properties, compressive strength, split tensile strength and flexural strength were conducted. Under the durability properties porosity, acid attack, alkali attack and fire resistance test were conducted..
