The objective of this study is to use municipal dry waste, plant waste and saw dust collected from various sources to make particle boards with each individual item as well as a combination of these in various ratios. Since most of the previous studies done are by making use of fibers, the present work focuses on finding the properties of the board without the use of fibers. The physical and mechanical properties of these boards are then determined by using a series of tests like moisture content test, water absorption properties, thickness swelling, tensile test, compressive test and flexural strength. The results are then compared and most of the samples are found to comply with the IS standards. © Published under licence by IOP Publishing Ltd.
