Abstract. Metal casting industries, either ferrous or non-ferrous, produce a large quantity of the waste foundry sand (WFS). Currently, it is either discarded to landfill or collected by waste organizations to extract iron remnants after washing. This research evaluates the reuse of WFS as a replacement of sand in structural fill and embankments.
