Increase in construction activities leads to innovation of many new building materials as there is scarcity of available resources. Continuous researches are undergoing in various parts of the world to find new building materials in concrete. One such waste used in such research is non-biodegradable wastes, mainly plastics. This study presents the various research works conducted to use non-biodegradable waste materials as a building material. Various forms of wastes and the tests conducted to use the same as a construction entity is studied.
