This study aimed to explore the possibility of substituting the conventional concrete mixture with the concrete with debris of aggregate. Specifically, this study sought to measure if there were significant difference in compressive and flexural strengthens between a conventional concrete and a concrete with debris as an aggregate. Experimental design was implemented in the study and it involved 3 samples for 7, 14, and 28 days for flexural and compressive strength test for both conventional concrete and concrete with debris as an aggregates. The mixture ratio used was 1:2:4 of cement, sand, and gravel, respectively. Each sample underwent the flexural and compressive test at Qualitest Solutions and Technologies Incorporated. Findings indicated that the samples were comparable and have no significant difference. Therefore, debris as aggregates is also suitable for use as a beam and slab, for flexural strength samples, and as column for the compressive strength samples.
