Black cotton soil is very good for agriculture, horticulture, sericulture and aquaculture. Black cotton soils are one of the major soil deposits of India. Black cotton soils cause serious construction problems without stabilization. Soil stabilization is the process which improves the physical properties of the soil. Such as shear strength, bearing capacity which can do by the use of plastic strip, apart from the conventional methods. The plastic used in this study was polypropylene which is thermoplastic polymer resistance to heat, chemical attack, solvents, glues and resistant to moisture absorption. The project involves the detailed study on possible use of plastic waste for soil improvement with plastic strips obtained from stationery material. Standard proctor test, CBR test and unconfined compression tests were performed by varying the plastic waste content from 0 % to 8 %. The optimum content of plastic waste to be added for improving each of the three said tests were determined and found to be 2 % by weight of black cotton soil.
