The Environmental Research & Education Foundation (EREF) shared that this year’s 22nd EREF Annual Charitable Auction will mark the 20th year that Mack Trucks has donated to the EREF Live Auction.

The EREF Annual Charitable Auction, the foundation’s largest fundraiser, is held annually at WasteExpo to help EREF further its mission to fund and direct research and educational initiatives for waste management practices. The auction has raised more than $16 million for the foundation and is made possible through the generous donations of waste industry members.

For 20 years Mack has maintained a long-standing commitment to supporting EREF and its mission to further research and education for the waste industry. “We at Mack are proud to help support EREF in any way we can because its research and scholars are making groundbreaking strides for this industry,” said Curtis Dorwart, Mack refuse product manager and vice chairman of the EREF Auction Committee.

Dorwart has played an integral role in supporting EREF and will continue to do so by soon serving as chair of the 2017 EREF Auction Committee.
