Who is EREF?
The Environmental Research & Education Foundation (EREF) is a non-profit, 501(c)3 charitable organization whose mission is to advance sustainable solid waste management practices through research and educational initiatives. The Foundation is one of the largest sources of funding for solid waste research in the U.S., allocating $0.5 – $1 million each year in grants and graduate student scholarships through our Research Grants and Scholarships Programs. Our Data & Policy Program aggregates data pertinent to current waste industry issues, as well as employs undergraduate student interns who assist with the data gathering and analysis.
With the help of the Ontario Waste Management Association (OWMA), EREF developed a program to support the Canadian waste sector, funding research where Canadian-based waste companies have indicated a need. In partnership with the OWMA, EREF is excited to hold its first Silent Auction at CWRE.
Donations to the EREF Silent Auction support the Environmental Research & Education Foundation’s mission in Canada.
