Study the Use of Cement and Plastic bottle Waste as Ingredient Added to the Asphaltic Concrete Wearing Course

This paper is concerned with the possibility of using plastic bottle waste as an ingredient to the Asphaltic Concrete Wearing Course (AC-WC). This research explores the effect of adding plastic and cement as ingredients to the mixture of asphalt concrete on the characteristics of Marshall. Plastics that are added are 2:4 and are 6% in weight. It was observed that the optimum bitumen content on the addition of 4% plastic and Marshall stability increases by 19% compared to the AC-WC without addition of plastic. The positive effect of plastic bottle on the characteristics of Marshall, along with its environmental advantages, make this material a feasible additive.
