Urbanization and industrialization was increased day by day, so usage of plastic also increased in all over the world. But the recycling and reuse of the plastic waste is less when compared to its manufacturing. Nowadays waste plastics are dumped in soil and also affect it severely on foundation. So stabilization of this kind of soil is needed to use for any other civil works. Expensive soil like black cotton is also called regur soil. This project involves the comparison of regur and red soil for the better usage in foundation works. The replacement of soil by plastic waste was conducted in the ratio of 2%, 4%, 6%. California bearing ratio (CBR), Standard proctor test, and permeability test were studied.

Keywords: Black cotton soil, CBR, Plastic powder, Red soil, Soil stabilization.
