The plastic bottleis a non-biodegradable polymers mostly containing carbon, hydrogen, and a few other elements such as chlorine, nitrogen and are indispensable to human. They Rapid growth of the world population led to increase in the demand of the plastics due to its vast applications in many fields. The non-biodegradability nature of plastic bottle necessitated for the investigation of an appropriate recycling model through the development of a new framework in an attempt tosignificant ly reduce the problems associated with illegal dumping of used plastic bottles, pollut ion and environmental hazards. To avert these problems, three AHP recycling models (mechanical, chemical and thermal recycling model of plastic bottles) were developed and evaluated based on some important criteria which include cost, quality, efficiency and environment using data that was collected from SWM Environment SdnBhd and Tzu chi Foundation waste management worker in Melaka. The AHP models were used to Quantitative weigh and identify alternative recycling model that have similar outcomes in meeting the plastic bottle recycling technology based on the objective which were evaluated using the multiple criteria to validate the three models which are recycling model. Research findings showed that the mechanical model for plastic recycling is the best technology (37.9 %) followed by chemical recycl ing model (31.41 %) and lastly thermal recycling model (30.70 %). The present study concludes that the mechanical recycling model for plastic bottle is suitable
