Abstract : The global plastic production is increasing rapidly with rise in population and changes in life style. This makes the disposal of plastic is becoming complicated because of the non-biodegradable property. So it is better to recycle than disposal. One of the trend in recycling of plastic is use in construction of roads. This type of recycling can also help in protecting the environment from the greenhouse gases that are exposed to atmosphere while disposal. The waste plastic in form of bottles, cups, caps, etc are made in form of powder or blended with crusher and coated over the aggregate and bitumen mixture by heating process for roads construction. This polymer coated aggregate and bitumen mixture shows high strength, better binding property, stability, increase in wear resistance, better durability and tear of roads. This makes the recycle of plastic in a efficient manner.
