Rapid development in Malaysia industry has led to a lot of waste disposal consumption such as plastic. It is become a serious environmental problem because plastic composed several toxic chemicals that pollutes soil, air and water that can threat to modern civilization. To prevent this issue many initiatives were made in the past to reuse the plastic waste, but no significant results were achieved. Consequently, an issue on sustainable construction gains was highlighted and several researches were carried out in order to explore the potential of plastic fiber used in building and construction management. Various attempts were made through experimentation to check the feasibility of plastic fiber to be use partially in concrete. This paper includes review of numerous studies conducted on utility of plastic fiber as additive material used in the concrete. It can be concluded that the addition of plastic fiber in concrete can enhance the mechanical properties in concrete such as tensile strength, flexural strength and compressive strength. Thus, the problem in plastic waste management can be reduce and also led to sustainable construction.
