Abstract: Quantities of waste glass have been on the rise in recent years due to an increase in industrialization and the rapid improvement in the standard of living. Unfortunately, the majority of waste glass is not being recycled but rather abandoned, and is therefore the cause of certain serious problems such as the waste of natural resources and environmental pollution. This paper has attempted to provide concise information of strength of concrete containing waste glass powder when subjected to sulphate attack. Cement replacement by glass powder in the range 5 to 40 in increments of 5 percentages has been studied. Replacement of 20 cement by glass powder was achieved higher strength when concrete was subjected to sulphate attack.
