The increase in the world’s demand for polymers has led to an accumulation of plastic waste in the environment, specifically in landfills, that has serious consequences to human and animal health. For plastic waste management the general ways practiced are reduce, reuse, and recycle (primary recycling). Though various plastic waste management techniques and different types of reactors have been developed into well-established technologies, the majority of these techniques are still at research and development stages to date. Partial replacement of e-plastic waste as coarse-aggregate in cement concrete has received significant attention in the production of eco-friendly concretes. The utilization of e-plastic waste materials is a partial solution to environmental and ecological problems. The use of e-plastic waste will reduces the aggregate cost and provides a good strength for the civil structures and roads. In addition, we suggest other perspectives for future studies, by identifying the knowledge gaps, between eco-toxicity of plastics wastes and waste management techniques, providing a direction for such research.

Key words: Primary recycling, E-plastic waste, Coarse-aggregate, Eco-friendly concretes.
