Utilisation of construction and demolition waste in production of structural concretes is still questionable. Use of fibres for enhancement of material properties and rejection of uncertainties is a hopeful solution for use of the recycled materials as aggregate in concrete. The paper will introduce possibilities of combination of fibres and waste aggregate and examples of its use in practical applications. Complex approach to utilisation of construction waste is an interesting offer for building industry contactors. Procedure of production of fibre reinforced concrete with recycled aggregate and proposed manners of manufacturing for some structural applications will be presented. Results of experiments will be shown and way of testing will be discussed for particular applications. The economical benefits and cost effectiveness will be evaluated for particular practical applications.
