Abstract: The intention of this study is to enquire the utilization of waste materials like stone dust and plastic bottle fiber as a strips in the stabilization of clayey soil in the sub grade and to appraise the effects of stone dust and plastic fiber on geotechnical properties of soil. The stabilization of soil is to improves the engineering properties of fragile soil by adding stabilizer like wooden husk, stone dust, cement, fly ash, rice husk ash, lime, allcofine and plastic fiber etc. in this study the stone dust and plastic fiber are used as a stabilizer. The stone dust is a variety of solid waste material which are easily available from stone crusher and Plastic bottle are also solid waste material which are day by day increasing and not in environmental friendly hence they have to be recycled and to be used for soil stabilization .In this study ,The various percentage of stone dust is taken as 2%,4%,6%,7%,8%,10%12%,16%,20%.After performing work on these percentages the optimum value obtained is 7% and further test like Standard Proctor and CBR is to be conducted on this optimum value. The plastic was taken 0.4%,0.8%,1.2%,1.6%,2.0%.these percentage mixed with soil sample as to explore the effects of mixing on the OMC ,MDD, and CBR properties of soil.
