Mack Trucks helps environmental foundation raise big bucks

GREENSBORO, NC – Mack Trucks played a big role in the success of the 21st annual Environment Research & Education Foundation (EREF) charitable auction at WasteExpo 2015.

Bids for the three Mack-based models donated reached a total of $870,000 – all proceeds going to EREF research. Specifically, Mack provided three chassis, a Mack TerraPro Low Entry, a Mack TerraPro Cabover and a Mack Granite, each featuring a body donated by Heil, McNeilus and Galbreath respectively.

“Mack is extremely proud to have been such a big part of this year’s EREF charitable auction,” said Curtis Dorwart, Mack vocational products marketing manager. “Thanks to a tremendous response by the bidders on these trucks, EREF is able to further its mission to fund scientific research, as well as educational efforts about waste management practices.”

Richard Burke, CEO of Advanced Disposal and chairman of the EREF board of directors commented: “As the only organization of its kind dedicated to waste industry research and education, EREF depends on the generosity of people in our industry to carry out our mission. Thanks to the incredible amount raised by the donations from Mack and our other auction contributors, we are able to continue helping lead our industry to a more sustainable future.”
