In the world construction, one material is used above all is concrete. Concrete is far more produced all over the world than any other man made material. It is incredibly versatile, and is used in almost all major construction projects. A modern lifestyle, alongside the advancement of technology has led to an increase in the amount and type of waste being generated, leading to a waste disposal crisis. This study tackle the problems of the waste that is generated in abundance in the world such as eggshell, glass, and human hair (fiber). In order to dispose off or at least reduce the accumulation of certain kinds of waste, it has been suggested to reuse some of these waste materials to substitute a percentage of the primary materials used in the ordinary Portland cement (OPC) concrete. In this experimental work, an attempt has been made to determine the behavior of Ordinary Portland Cement concrete of M20 grade of concrete with and without waste materials (5% & 10% ESP partially replaced with cement, 1.5% Human Hair addition by weight of cement and 10% & 20% Glass Powder partially replaced with sand) . Six specimens of each batch were casted and tested for compressive strength and split tensile strength. The cubes casted with and without 5% and 10% Egg shell Powder are showing an increase of 6.91% in C.S of concrete with 5% ESP & an increase of 19.32% in C.S of concrete with 10% ESP, at an age of 28 days. The samples with and without 1.5% Human Hair of M20 are showing an increase of 9.8% in C.S of concrete, at an age of 28days and an increase of 14% in S.T.S of concrete, at an age of 14 days. The cubes casted with and without 10% and 20% Glass Powder are showing an increase of 14.88% in C.S of concrete with 10% GP & a decrease of 32.6% in C.S of concrete with 20% GP , at an age of 28 days.
