Black cotton soil that's one of the most important soil deposits in India becomes especially problematic due to its property of higher degree of swelling and shrinkage. These soils are used in subgrade of pavement and also in construction of structures. Hence so as to improve the houses of such soils many strategies are to be had like soil stabilization, soil replacement, moisture control, prewetting etc. In recent years, soil stabilization by the use of numerous minerals like quarry dust, saw dirt, copper dust and fly ash were most generally used. These strong wastes are every day increasing in India, which isn't environmental pleasant hence they ought to be recycled. Thus, a review is presented to make use of the ones wastes in soil stabilization. In this paper, the observe mainly focusses on stabilization of soil using strong waste. To recognize the performance of stabilized soil, its residences like Atterberg limits, compaction characteristics, swelling, shear strength, CBR value and other Index & Engineering properties have been discussed.

Due to increase in population growth and the reduction of available land in India, more and more construction of the buildings and the infrastructure works have to be carried out on weak or soft soils. In India, the one of the soft soil is the Clay Soil, which covers an area of approximately 20% of the available land area. It is considered as unsuitable soil for construction purpose due to its swell and shrinkage properties upon wetting and drying. Such soils shows immense swelling while it comes in touch with water; however, it shrinks with decrease of Water content material and develops cracks on drying. Soil stabilization is the process to alter the properties of a present soil to improve the required engineering properties.
This paper presents the results of the soil stabilization of Clay Soil using e-waste and Fly Ashwith varying dosages of e-waste i.e. 3%, 5% and 9% and with 20% of Fly Ash. The performance the Stabilized soil was evaluated the use of the familiar soil tests namely; Atterberg’s limit, specific gravity, compaction test, unconfined compressive test, California bearing ratio (CBR).After performing Take a look at there was an improvement in angle of friction (Ф). While the proportion of e waste multiplied it became also located that there may be a growth in the Bearing capacity of the clay soil as bearing capacity is depending on C and Ф.
