Efforts were made to recycle Glass reinforced plastic (GRP) waste powder in concrete products and assess its compressive strength to comply with British Standards for use in construction applications. More than 90 GRP waste-filled concrete specimens were developed using the concentration of 5%, 15%, 30% and 50% (w/w). The findings revealed that the increase in concentration of GRP waste decreased the compressive strength. However, increase in curing duration resulted in improving the compressive strength of concrete. The findings of this work pave the way for further GRP waste recycling in precast construction products for use in various applications.
