EREF’s Annual Auction

EREF’s largest fundraiser, its Annual Charitable Auction, has raised more than $16 million to further EREF’s mission to fund and direct scientific research and educational initiatives for waste management practices. Held at WasteExpo each year, the Auction is a direct result of the generosity of members of the waste industry, who donate the exciting items up for auction.

The Silent Auction features smaller donations that allow donors to increase their booth traffic. Examples of previous donations include iPads, sporting event tickets and trips. Donations to the Silent Auction must be valued at a minimum of $400, and up to 2 items may be donated to meet the $400 minimum.

The Live Auction is a fast-paced event where larger items are sold to the highest bidder by a professional auctioneer. Examples of previous donations include equipment, outings with industry executives and trucks. Donations to the Live Auction must be valued at $5,000 or more.
