The Environmental Research and Education Foundation is pleased to announce the launch of its redesigned website. This new site comes at a time of growth for EREF, whose new and expanded strategic direction for the next five years includes substantially increasing the amount it gives in grants, scholarships and internships.
The website features easier navigation thanks to a more in-depth menu featuring drop-down sub-menus and bolder colors which highlight the organization's 4 core programs (research grants & projects, continuing education, waste data & reports and scholarship program).
EREF's extensive collection of resources, such as Continuing Education courses and the Internal Research Program, are more easily accessible through the new website to provide users with one location to meet their needs. Once a user creates an account, they need only log in to download content and register for events.
The new blog will feature updates on EREF happenings and industry news. Users are encouraged to interact and offer feedback using the social media buttons which will now appear at both the top and bottom of each web page.
The Environmental Research and Education Foundation’s (EREF) Annual Charitable Auction continues to be one of the highlights of WasteExpo, held June 7 – 9, 2016 in Las Vegas. Having raised more than $16 million since its inception in 1994, the Auction features generous donations from members of the waste industry and provides opportunities for exhibitors to increase their visibility at WasteExpo.
The EREF Auction consists of 3 events: the Silent Auction, Live Auction and Raffle. This year, EREF will introduce mobile bidding in the Silent Auction and online bidding in the Live Auction.
The Board of Directors of the Environmental Research and Education Foundation (EREF) is pleased to announce the creation of a scholarship for Master’s students, which will be funded by donations from the Garbageman’s Invitational, an industry golf tournament and social event.

The Board of Directors of the Environmental Research and Education Foundation (EREF) is pleased to announce the election of its 2016 Officers as well as its new and expanded strategic direction for the next five years. One of the Board's primary goals is to substantially increase the amounts given in grants, scholarships and internships annually through several key objectives and by maintaining EREFs core strengths.
In order to accomplish this and other goals, EREF will make staffing adjustments in 2016 to provide sufficient bandwidth for the desired growth through the creation of two new positions: a Communications Coordinator and a Program Manager for Research and Scholarships.
