Abstract: As we humans are continuously developing ourselves for a better livelihood for ourselves and for the next generation. For this ability, we continuously and intensively increasing of plastic in our routine. This causes a very hazardous effect on all living things and also affects increasingly the environment as well as the ecosystem and its inhabitants. Nowadays the problem of plastic waste is increasing immensely causing hazardous effects on the environment. So, it is necessary to think out of the box for mini mising plastic waste by searching for every possible solution to minimize plastic waste. On this basis we trying to find out the use of plastic waste as construction material i.e. plastic tiles. This research paper revolves around manufacturing floor tiles using waste plastic without adding any additives such as sand, fly ash etc., and also without using cement and then analysing it with the normal tiles. By using this method plastic waste is reduced to some extent; plastic consumption is increasing day by day there are not many methods to dispose of it. The plastic tiles are compared with the normal tiles to assess the different physical and mechanical properties. The tests that are excited on plastic tiles are compressive strength, vertical flammability tests etc. The result obtained from these tests on plastic wastes is far better than the normal tiles. As per this study it can be considered to use plastic waste as a binding material instead of floor tiles as it proves economical.
