The research applied analytic hierarchy process (AHP) model to determine relative weights for ranking the disposal of solid wastes products in Abuja metropolitan. Three (3) settlement patterns, each having thirteen (13) wastes collection centres were identified. Presently, the disposal of solid wastes at these settlement patterns and their respective collection centres does not have proper schedules. It was found out that this lack of organised plan resulted in some centers, within a settlement pattern, having huge piles of solid wastes unattended to while others were disposed promptly. This unplanned schedule necessitated the application of AHP model to determine the relative weights that ranked the settlement patterns and the collection centres for proper schedule of disposal of the solid wastes.
