This review aimed to explore different use of glass wastes in the form of sand or cullet as an alternative fine or coarse aggregates or others for projects that will fulfill the government regulation to assist the industry rescuing the environment. Although glassy wastes satisfy recycling goals, but in the concrete structures application, although easy sustain good product performance, but in the long term glass waste suffer a serious problem due to Alkali-Silica Reaction (ASR) phenomena. This study basically explore several extensive studies were carried out to counter this. Using recent advances this matter was mainly overcomed. The effective of waste glass application in spreading novelty markets as well as paving stones, concrete masonry blocks, terrazzo tiles and precast concrete panels. Beside its problem, glass waste seems a great material to civil engineering application.
