The demand for the reuse and recycling of waste materials in civil infrastructure projects has been increasing in last decades. This has been mainly driven by the accelerated depletion of natural resources and environmental impact associated with the disposal of wastes arising from a variety of anthropogenic activities. While the reuse and recycling of wastes is attractive from both economic and environmental perspectives, often the behaviour of these materials is not well understood, as their properties differ quite substantially from those of well-established additives (e.g. lime and cement) and natural fill materials (e.g. soil and aggregates).

This presentation aims to highlight applications of waste materials in geotechnical applications and provide guidelines for their potential adoption in construction projects.
