Abstract: Recycled concrete aggregate (RCA) is one of the major material generated from municipal soild waste industry. In the current study, recycled concrete aggregates are collected from the demolished building. The index and engineering properties of crushed concrete and locally available soil are determined. The study aims at effective reuse of demolition concrete waste as backfill of earth retaining walls. RCA passing through 4.75mm is stabilized by using Cement kiln dust (CKD) and Fly Ash (FA) in various proportions. Red soil is partially replaced by 30%, 50%, and 70% with recycled concrete fine aggregates. A numerical model is developed using limit equilibrium software i.e GeoStudio Slope/w. It is found that 15% CKD and 15% FA is optimum to stabilize the material. In case of blended soils, 30% replacement with RC-FA is found to be optimum
