Utilization of waste glass at optimum amounts in concrete production not only provides significant environmental benefits such as reducing carbon dioxide emissions generated during the production process of cement but also enhances performance of the concrete and cement. The aim of this work was to review the effect of addition of waste glass on cement and concrete. The review showed that addition of glass powder enhances the compressive strength properties of the concrete product while using waste glass as aggregate showed that the slump flow increased with the increase of recycled glass content. On the other hand, the compressive strength, splitting tensile strength and flexural strength of the concrete were decreased with the increase in the recycled glass content.
