A solution for reducing the amount of generated electronic waste in India has become one of a major issue. Globally this problem has taken major part of total solid waste amount. Rectifying this waste is still questionable because we cannot burn it easily, landfill is also harmful for this waste and dumping into sea with affect aquatic life. So it is a matter of finding a best solution for it so that we can use this waste in different work. This research is about reducing the generated E-waste from environment by adding it into M25 Concrete and hence testing for workability and compressive strength. This study helps in optimizing the generated amount of E-waste and its scope in construction industry. This experimental research adds 0, 4, 8, 12, 16, and 20 % of E-waste by weight in M25 concrete and hence tests it for workability and compressive strength.
