In general the construction works are building with reinforced cement concrete (RCC) material. The Cement concrete is composition of cement, coarse and fine aggregate, water and some admixtures. For many works the coarse aggregate is brought from granite stone. Geographically the Tadpatri, Anantapur (Dist), Andhra Pradesh (State) is much potential to layered stone (Kadapa slab). The layered stone is utilizing for roof and floor works. During processing of finished product, waste is generating and this waste is dumping in and around the town (Tadpatri).The paper presents the feasibility of utilization of stone waste for construction works. The primary lab tests showed the potentiality of waste for construction.
