Plastic waste remains a major problem in Indonesia, however, it’s processing and utilization is currently very limited, especially in the construction sector. In addition, they are possibly divided into two categories, which include (1) Plastic garbage, which consists of bottles container for mineral water, soap, and oil, as well as oil conductors, buckets, e.t.c. (2) leaf of plastic waste, encompassing bags, food wrappers, mica snack.  Furthermore, one of the famous construction materials is the paving block, used as the cover for pavement surfaces, usually characterized by good quality, with a high value of compressive strength and low water absorption capacity. This research, therefore, was conducted with experimental methods, using plastic waste leaves as an adhesive in the manufacture of paving blocks with varying mixtures C1 (2 plastic: 1 sand), C2 (3 plastic: 1 sand), C3 (5 plastic: 1 sand), C4 (9 plastic: 1 sand), and C5 (11 plastic: 1 sand). In addition, tests were conducted by the Indonesian National Standard (SNI), and the results showed the optimum mixture was C5 (11 plastic: 1 sand), based on the compressive strength of 246.93 kg / cm2, and water absorption value of 2.23%. Hence, it is categorized into quality B, which is possibly applied in parking space construction. This, therefore, indicates the capability of applying plastic waste leaves, with a certain mixture variation as an adhesive in the manufacture of paving blocks.
