Richard Duncan, a professor of systems science at Portland State University, was interested in a systems approach to waste management. In 1975 Duncan proposed the ORE plan, a method for assessing the costs and outcomes of waste collection and separation models. This lecture gives examples of different approaches to solid waste management including the ORE plan, which includes recycling.
