A most importantproblematicissue related with socio-economic progression of a country is the disposal of waste.One of the most challenging works is to dispose the rubber tyre waste in a safe manner.Hence we proposed a system of stabilization of soils by using scrap rubber from the waste at varying compositions. By using this phenomenon, we extend an enormous growth in the field of waste management and also in the soil conservation. The behaviour and performance of the stabilized soils are strengthened and measured by using the soil properties, compaction and liberated compression. From the experiments conducted on the soils, it was detected that extreme dry density and besthumidity content reduces with increase in proportion of scrap rubber on soils. In order to the ecologicaldifficulties and health hazards modelled by the innumerable uncontrolled and uninhibited scrap tyre piles around the world, most technologically advanced countries have put in place a legal framework to address this concern. Principlesdiffer from country to country, but the chief goal of such regulation is to necessitate the removal of abandoned piles, provide for the environmentally safe disposal of newly generated waste tyres and also support new applications for tyre-derived material through the use of government grants.
