The usage of recycled material has been increased on buildings, things that bring the continuous or influence the use of material kind in construction industries. This experimental was conducted using a waste material as replacement or alternative for concrete mix design. Was casted lightweight concrete in M20 grade and the proportion of the partial replacement of concrete was 0%, 1.0%, 5.0%, 10.0%, 12.5%, 15.0%, and 20.0% by weight of sand. The experiment was
conducted, using cubes specimens, were casted a compression, split tension and flexural strength test at third days, 7 and 28 days curing of concrete. The result of this experimental show that the properties of M20 grade using PET plastic powder as fine aggregate shows many advantages. Was found that amount of the PET plastic powder, generally can improves the properties up to 10.0% of mix proportions of replacement in concrete. And the strength in the concrete after 10.0% of mix proportion with PET plastic powder was decreasing. For this study, the optimal replacement was found in amount of 10.0% of mix proportion.
