Now-a-days, environmental problem is faced all over the world. The things which are invented and used for our luxurious life are responsible for environmental pollution. Due to improper waste management, we facing land pollution. Land pollution is mainly due to waste plastic. This plastic can be reused or recycled to maintain the beauty of nature. To address this issue, in this paper, the waste plastic is used to make fibres. These plastic fibres were added in various percentages in the M25 grade concrete. This paper describes the performance of plastic fiber reinforced concrete (M25). The experiments were carried out on the specimens like cubes and cylinders which were casted in the laboratory and their behavior under the test was observed. The plastic fibers were added from 0.0 % to 0.8 %. The compressive strengths of concrete were determined after 7, 14 28 and 56 days of curing period. The test results were compared and the relationships between the standard concrete and Fibre reinforced concrete are presented.
