Glass waste & Egg Shell Powder cannot be processed for useful applications and may end up in a landfill. In India nearly 30 tonnes of Glass waste in every metropolitan city generated every year. This establishes the ecological problem and is measured an additional problem on the previouslyclose-fitting landfill space.This article studies the possibility of using postconsumer Glass Waste Powder and Egg Shell in Powder form as a fractional substitute for conservative cement on concrete. During manufacturing of cement it emits a huge carbon di oxide and cause various effect to atmosphere. In this project tried to minimize the usage of cement by partial replacement of waste material from general utilities. Here I replaced cement by partial as glass powder and egg shell powder with a percentage of 0 %, 20%, 30%, and 40% and for its compressive strength up to 7, 14 and 28 Ages evaluate the strength properties. Comparison result has obtained by cube test & split tensile test. Since now a day’s the developing and developed countries are facing lack of post consumer dumping site and it has become extremely serious difficulty. This waste product should convert resource of byproduct to control environmental pollutions.
