  <dc:description>A large number of solid wastes are being produced each day. This wastes, especially plastic and rubber effects the environment. So, nowadays these kinds of wastes are used in flexible pavements. In this project, the performance of the asphalt mixture using waste plastic and crumb rubber was determined. The aggregate were partially replaced by waste plastic (0.5%,1%,1.5%,2%,2.5%) and crumb rubber (0.5%,1%,1.5%,2%,2.5%). Also, 10% of fly ash is used in addition to filler material. Various tests like specific gravity, Water absorption, Impact test and Crushing strength for aggregate and softening point, Penetration test, Viscosity test, Specific gravity test and Binder content test for bitumen were conducted in obtained asphalt mixture. A Marshal stability test is also conducted to find the performance of the asphalt mixture. All the test results are compared with the results of the conventional mixture. The result obtained shows the plastic waste incorporated asphalt mixture does not affect the performance of the pavement also reduces the rutting and fatigue of the flexible pavement.</dc:description>
