Disposing of waste is an environmental issue. Using waste will help reduce land filling. The successful research and development of a new building material, or component using waste as raw material, is a very complex and multidisciplinary task having technical, environmental, financial, marketing, legal and social aspects. In this paper it has been tried to find a low compressive strength mix with using only waste material include: Red Gypsum, Plaster board Gypsum, Basic Oxygen Slag, and Cement By Pass Dust. The amount of compressive strength and the flow of mixes had measured. The effect of water amount on compressive strength of some mixes has also measured.
