Abstract
Inorganic waste such as plastic and Styrofoam are very difficult to decompose/degrade in nature. This study aims to provide a solution for utilizing plastic and styrofoam waste in brick making and to determine their effect on the compressive strength. This research was an experimental research with independent sample t- test. Data on the compressive strength test result of the two types of brick were analyzed by independent t-test to determine the effect of the addition of plastic waste and Styrofoam waste against the powerful concrete brick press. The results of the study with the addition of plastic waste and styrofoam waste in the manufacture of brick had a compressive strength of an average of 44,62 kg/cm2. The result of the independent t-test was known to the value of Sig. (2-tailed) of 0,000<0,05, it shows the average value of the compressive strength test results in the control sample group with the treatment sample group. This research was proved that plastic waste and Styrofoam waste provide benefits related to the compressive strength of the concrete brick so that it is expected to provide an alternative treatment for plastic waste and Styrofoam waste in reducing the negative impacts of environmental pollution that caused by the disposal. The processing of plastic and styrofoam waste currently was done by combustion and hoarding in the ground.
