One of EREF’s goals is to serve as a solid waste research virtual library for the benefit of the public and solid waste field.  As a result, you will also find solid waste research cited in this section that has been sponsored by both the EREF and other entities.  This library will be continually updated.

In many cases, EREF reports are in PDF form and can be directly downloaded from our website.  For research that has been published in peer-reviewed journals, in other forms, or is sponsored by other entities, citations are provided with links to the appropriate locations to find these respective documents.

Please note that the Bibliography is still in production and more publications will be added soon.
