Öz The wastes generated by the recent industrial developments threaten the future of the world. Therefore, researches on the recycling of the industrial wastes in various ways are increasing day by day. In this study, glass powder, a waste of glass industry, colemanite ore waste, a by-product of boron industry and filter cake, one of the wastes of sugar factories, were used. The evaluation of these wastes in gypsum and lime-based mortars, which have been widely used for centuries, has been investigated. In this study, 10, 20 and 30% of the waste materials were used instead of gypsum. Unit weights, ultrasonic pulse velocities, apparent porosities and thermal conductivity coefficients of the gypsum-lime based mortars were determined. Compressive strength and bending strength tests were performed to determine the mechanical properties. In this way, it is aimed to protect the natural raw materials and to evaluate the waste materials.
