The report summarizes research on the use of waste glass as an aggregate in asphaltic paving mixtures. Reusing waste glass in this manner would provide an outlet for large quantities of the glass and would permit recycling in urban areas where large accumulations of glass are found. Field tests as well as observations of pavement performance have indicated that field installations of asphaltic paving mixtures containing glass have generally maintained adequate skid resistance and performed acceptably from a structural standpoint. The economic feasibility of using waste glass as an aggregate in asphaltic concrete is discussed. (Modified author abstract)
