Abstract: Scientists from all over the world have focused heavily on environmental degradation and the comparatively high cost of trash disposal, which has prompted researchers to develop a way to repurpose waste materials in various applications. Iraqi citizens use hundreds of tons of PVC annually, creating a sizable amount of garbage. Without any benefit or recycling, these vast quantities end up in landfills. In addition, one of the main problems the Iraqi government is currently dealing with is landfills. So, the purpose of this study is to recycle PVC waste. Also, it is known that Reinforced Concrete industrial structures are liable to the effects of crude oil products, which may have a disadvantageous influence on their exploitation and safety. therefore, this paper study, the influence of crude oil products (Gasoline) on the physico - mechanical properties of cement mortar. Therefore, experiments were conducted using cement mortar mixes containing five levels of PVC (0%, 2%, 4%, and 6% by weight of CEMENT). Compressive and flexural strength tests were used to demonstrate how PVC and gasoline influenced the mechanical properties of cement mortar.
