Concrete is one of the key material used in the construction industry. Concrete is used as a compressive material and it is also reinforced by rebar’s to improve its tensile strength. Due to rapid urbanization concrete use is getting huge demand and it became a major business industry. Whereas, it also utilizes natural resources to the same hasty level. Therefore, this paper utilizes waste tissues of a university as an aggregate replacer. The different test was performed in a green and hardened state. It is observed that the new concrete is good in workability and it has normal temperature but it is not good at resisting higher compressive loads. Similarly, the waste material collected after the tests and utilized in making a commercial product. This paper aims to save the environment by utilizing different types of waste in making useful items to save resources.
