Tarpaulin is a multipurpose textile product made from different coating formulation grade of polymer that has high durability material to withstand hot, windy and raining weather. This causes a problem in which it is difficult to dispose naturally due to its non-degradable characteristic. An experimental investigation was conducted on determining the workability of the concrete mixture with addition of non-degradable crushed polyvinyl tarpaulin using slump test and also the effect on the compressive strength of the concrete mixture by using hydraulic compressive machine. The crushed polyvinyl tarpaulin was proportioned ranging 5% to 30% with respect to cement’s percent by weight in kg. This specimen was molded in a cubic 100mm x 100mm x 100mm with constant volume of cement, sand and gravel at 1:1.5:4 mix proportion of concrete mix design 30MPa in 28 days using DOE method. The result was compared against control sample shows workability of fresh concrete reduced by increment amount of crushed polyvinyl tarpaulin in the concrete mixture. For the compressive strength, performance of concrete with minimum percentage of crushed polyvinyl tarpaulin in concrete mixture were higher than designed concrete mixture but lower than the control sample.
