Because natural resources in construction are limited, it is advisable to look for new alternatives that meet comparable functions, and likewise, reduce consumption of non-renewable resources. The use of recycled materials is of benefit to the uncontrolled elimination of residues that cause the use of the public resources, such as landfills. In addition, this contributes to the reduction of the environmental impact caused by the industries in the process of obtaining the same ones. Therefore, recycled materials such as concrete or masonry demolished, glass and ceramics different, can be employed in different ways to be used in the construction industry. This work focuses on presenting the initial characterization of three recycled materials as an alternative to use in replacement of natural sand in mortars, this as a first step for further study in different percentages of replacement, as currently his understanding is unknown, or little known.
