Abstract

The amount of plastic waste in municipal solid waste (MSW) is increasing due to population growth, urbanization, development activities and changes in the enemies of life leading to the loss of the entire world. Plastic waste disposal is therefore dangerous and a major problem worldwide due to their irreverent and unsightly appearance. As this is not scientifically unsustainable & it is possible to create pollution of land and water. This garbage plastic has reclaimed a portion of the standard equipment to improve the desirable features of certain road mixing machines. In the present text developed strategies for the use of plastic waste for the purpose of road construction and flexible pedestrian crossings. In the normal process of making bitumen is used as a binder. Such bitumen can be replaced with pieces of dirty plastic and a bitumen mixture can be used as an overlay layer for a flexible layer. This compactly modified plastic composite material exhibits better binding properties, durability, density and more water resistance.
