The safe disposal of both hazardous and nonhazardous waste and degradable and non-degradable wastes has become a problematic for the civil engineers as well as to many citizens. This is because only few states are able to dump these wastes emanating from industries safely. This paper presents a research on soil stabilization by means of industrial waste and agricultural waste such as Glass Powder and Rice Husk Ash (RHA). So, efforts have been made using glass powder and rice husk ash (RHA) in this research to revamp, intervene the quality of the soil. The main objective of the soil stabilization is to increase the shear strength and decreasing the compressibility of the soil. Soil Stabilization is the process which improves the physical properties of soil, such as increasing shear strength, bearing capacity, etc. which can be done by use of controlled compaction or addition of suitable admixtures like cement, lime and waste materials like flyash, glass bottle, etc. During the course of the project it is planned to conduct various experiment like Specific gravity, Atterberg limits tests, Sieve analysis, Proctor compaction test, and CBR test to increase the strength and behavior of the soil properties. Then the results and graphs of various mixes are compared to see their effects in the soil stabilization. The stabilization technique has an additional benefit of providing an environment friendly way to deal with industrial waste and household wastes. The paper shows that there is a great possibility of the replacement of Industrial and Agriculture waste.
