Currently, buildings are on the rise, which causes significant environmental pollution due to the lack of controlled landfills to deposit solid construction wast; an alternative solution is to recycle this waste produced by the construction and or demolition of concrete elements structural, and use them as coarse aggregate in the manufacture of concrete. On the other hand, the metalworking industry uses iron and steel as primary inputs, which are the main components of industrial waste, with its generation sources being industrial plants and manufacturing workshops for small and medium enterprises; a solution to this problem is to use your waste as a fine aggregate in the production of concrete due to its good properties. These solution alternatives preserve natural resources and promote their sustainability. The research work developed focuses on the use of structural concrete and steel waste to reduce its amount of waste and it is proposed to add it to the concrete. The results show that the addition of steel chips in concrete compared to standard concrete results in reduced slump, increased unit weight and contributes to the improvement of compressive strength, tcylinder splitting tensile strength and flexural strength.
