The laser finds increasing commercial use as a cutting tool. The big numbers of waste plastic products contribute as one of the major waste in the country. Reused campaign needs to be more enhanced in order to achieve the goal of reducing the waste. Since the HDPE oil containers were one of the major waste, the study to cut it been carried out with the help of laser cutting machine. The optimum parameters need to be optimized in order to get the minimum energy consumption and low cost processes. The design of experiment (DOE) been used in order to get the best parameter during experimental work. Various responses been measured which include cutting distance, kerf width, surface roughness and burr height. Consequently, most of the responses were measured using the digital imaging microscopy and portable surface roughness tester. It finds that the laser power and cutting speed play a major effect in all four responses. Besides, the result was being agreed well from the previous study on the same material specification. Several material applications recommended in order to maximize the use of waste plastic products in the human life.
