Abstract: The objective of the research carried out in this paper highlights the critical sustainability parameter of reusability of waste materials in the construction sector of India. This paper followed firstly the intense literature survey to identify the waste materials for the replacement in the concrete mix, hereafter Paper Pulp (P.P) and Crusher Dust (C.D) indicates the similar nature like cement and sand respectively. Secondly, an assumed proportion of replacement of P.P by 2.5%, 5%,7.5%,10%, and 12.5% by cement, and 10%, 20%, and 30% replacement of C.D by sand is adopted in M20 mix design by volume method. Thirdly, the casting of 48 sample cubes size of 150 mm × 150 mm × 150 mm is performed for Average Compressive Strength test, and casting of 48 cylindrical cubes of 150 mm in diameter and 300 mm long for Split Tensile Strength. Fourthly, the results are carried out for 7th day testing along with 28th day testing for both tests along with slump variation of different samples. It is observed after the experimental analysis that the elite results compared to normal M20 mix are exhibited when the replacement variation of P.P is 5% along with 10% variation of C.D for both Average Compressive Strength and Split Tensile test. In addition to it, the highest slump is obtained for replacement variation of 12.5% P.P and 10%C.D.
