Nowadays, waste becoming an issue that can contribute to the pollution and can harmful to the people, animal and environment. It has been estimated that the amount of waste in the cities in developing countries is almost about 580 million tons per year. A lot of countries resort to get rid of their waste in many ways in order to reduce the environmental and the health problems. For example, some countries have resorted to bury the waste but they faced problems of groundwater pollution and other problems, therefore it is found that the best way to get rid of the waste is by recycled and re-manufactured it. Oil is one of the most commonly reported as influence to the pollution. Discharge of oil into drainage systems, onto land or to watercourses is not only an offence indeed can be harmful to river birds, fish and other wildlife. Even a small quantity of the oil spreading, it can cause a lot of harmful to the environment and human life. In this study, compressive strength machine is used to measure the strength of the brick that made from two types of oil which are virgin cooking oil and used cooking oil. There are many types of brick in the construction such as fire brick, cement brick, facing brick and so on. A wall or column carrying a compressive load behaves like any other strut, and its loadbearing capacity depends on the compressive strength of the materials, the cross-sectional area and the geometrical properties as expressed by the slenderness ratio. The strength of bricks is affected by the oil percentage inclusion, curing duration and temperature.
