Abstract: The Construction is recognized as one of the most important activities for the economic and social development, and on the other hand, behaves also as a major generator of environmental impacts, either by consumption of natural resources, the modification of the landscape or the generation of construction and demolition waste(CDW). Investing in an implementation of managed clean and healthy in the area of CDW is essential for the environment and for the economy of the cities, who are spending less resources on the collection, cleaning of drains and treatment of diseases. Nowadays, the amount of waste generated is considered large, occupying much space in landfills, and its transportation, depending on the volume and weight, is quite expensive. Recycling and reuse of these wastes are extremely important to control and mitigate environmental problems, as well as produce various materials value-added. Over 90% of waste can be recycled, reused and transformed into aggregates with characteristics very similar to the original product, thus creating environmentally friendly products such as sand, gravel, pebbles. This research concerns the study of the properties of concrete containing CDW, aiming its use in the manufacture of concrete blocks to seal without structural function. Blocks have been molded with partial replacement of natural aggregates by recycled aggregates and later were performed tests of compressive strength in accordance with the standards to prove the technical feasibility of the material for the trait studied. © (2013) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.
