Thanks to the generosity of our donors, the 2016 EREF Annual Charitable Auction at WasteExpo raised more than $1.6 million to help further support EREF’s mission to fund and direct scientific research and educational initiatives for waste management practices.

In 2016, EREF introduced online bidding that extended the Live Auction beyond WasteExpo attendees. Using Ritchie Bros. Auctioneer’s online bidding allowed people around the world to experience the EREF Auction in real- time. The mobile bidding platform gave attendees the opportunity to bid on Silent Auction items from their mobile phones anytime and anywhere.
