The most important environmental impediment at the present time is the accumulation of glass waste (transparent glass bottles) many experiments and researches have been made on waste and recycling to get use of it as much as possible. This research studys recycling of colorless glass waste and turns them into raw materials as an alternative for cement to save the environment from glass waste and reduce some of the disadvantages of cement and its interactions with conserving the mechanical and physical properties of concrete. This research include recycling of colorless glass bottle which is locally used and turn them into a fine powder to be replaced by a certain percentages of cement. A set of required samples were prepared for mechanical tests at a rate of ten samples for different weight percentage (0%, 2% ,4% ,5% ,6% ,8% ,10% ,15% ,20% ,25%) . Thermal conductivity tests are performed on these sample and the tests result showed that the thermal conductivity decrease with the increase of weight percentage where the large weight percentage are better than the small weight percentage comparing with the stander sample.
