If you are looking to simply melt the plastic and see how it fills up the container, I'd suggest that you use Ansys Fluent for this analysis. You could use the Solidification/Melting model. You will need a solid-liquid melt temperature. In addition, you will also need the latent heat for melting.
Anything else really depends on what additional physics you are looking to model.
I hope this helps.
