Abstract: Nowadays, the paving blocks that in the market are heavy and the price are costly. This study will introduce the lightweight paving blocks and more affordable because the waste materials such as tins, plastic and quarry dust are use in the development of the concrete paving blocks namely as Eco-Friendly Paving Block. Eco paving blocks will be compared to control paving blocks due to its durability and compressive strength. Based on the past research, tin and plastic are used as coarse aggregate while quarry dust will act as fine aggregate. The method and test for concrete work was conducted which is slump test, density test and compressive strength test. The result shows that Eco-Friendly Paving Block can be used at non-traffic area based on their compressive strength with the value of 13.3275N/mm² compared to control paving block with value of 72.3845N/mm². The uses of this waste material also can reduce the amount of environmental pollutants such as water and soil pollution.
