Concrete is the most widely used building material, which received hardening of mixture prepared from the coarse and fine aggregate, binding substance – cement and water. Cement and aggregate quality, v/c ratio of the mixture is determined by the uniformity of compacting properties of the concrete basic. Compressive strength of concrete is one of the most important properties of concrete. The paper examined a metal cord waste from recycled tires, effect on concrete properties, the optimal additive content was chosen. After the studies of the properties of the concrete with the different quantities of metal cord waste, it was determined that by increasing the amount of waste metal cord in the concrete the compressive strength of the specimens, density, predicted resistance to frost cycles increases, and absorption decreases.
