The article considers the possibility of using wastepaper sludge ash (WSA) as a soil reinforcement material for the construction of layers of road wear. Loamy sand, sandy loam, silty clay loam, silty clay were chosen as soils for strengthening. The maximum density of the soil skeleton at optimum humidity was established by the method of Proctor. Wastepaper sludge ash and Portland cement grade 400 were used separately for soil strengthening. Six compositions of strengthened soil for each type of soil were investigated according to the strength criterion of water-saturated samples at the age of seven, fourteen and twenty-eight days. The research results indicate that wastepaper sludge ash can be used to strengthen different types of soils with the achievement of following grades of stabilized soil: M10, M20, M40.
