Concrete is the most commonly used building material, in which cement and aggregate are unavoidable to manufacture. So, the use of excessive aggregate may lead to higher prices as a requirement of natural resources being costly. Solid waste management has nowadays received a lot of attention. From the ground. Different solid waste, like waste tyres, has become a concern due to its non-biologically degradable Nature. In many industries, such as thermal power plants, the majority of waste tyre rubbers are used as fuels, Cement furnaces, brick furnaces etc. Sadly, such use is not environmentally friendly and highly demanding, but it is costly. Thus, the use of scrap tyre rubber in the prepara-tion of concrete was thought to be alternative disposal. This kind of waste is meant to protect the atmosphere. Attempt that has been done in this analysis to classify the different properties required for the construction of a concrete mix with rough tyre rub-ber particles to be used as aggregate in a systematic manner. As part of this project, the M20 grade concrete was selected as the reference concrete specimen. Rubber tyre parti-cles in the shape of coarse aggregate is used in place of conventional coarse aggregate.
