The REGIME method is an easy to understand techniques which is based on pairwise comparisons and which can use qualitative data for decision making problems. The steps of the technique are simple and can be easily adopted to complex decision problems. Classical REGIME techniques use crisp numbers to evaluate qualitative evaluations. In this paper we propose Pythagorean Fuzzy REGIME (PF-REGIME) techniques which integrates Pythagorean Fuzzy Sets with REGIME technique. The proposed PF-REGIME is applied to waste disposal site selection problem. The decision model is constructed for three alternatives and five criteria in order to demonstrate the performance of the proposed PF-REGIME method.
