Abstract: In this paper, attempts are made to use waste plastics to make a novel Waste Polymer Incorporated Concrete (WPIC) mixes for gamma and neutron radiation shielding purposes. These mixes are achieved by simultaneous incorporation of waste polymeric material and high density fine and coarse aggregate components from iron industry in place of conventional ingredients. The results have indicated that the waste plastics along with by-products of iron industry can be conveniently used to make concrete mixes which have acceptable compressive strength characteristics and significantly enhanced shielding capabilities with respect to both gamma and neutron radiations. © 2021 Elsevier Ltd
