Mack Trucks donated a new Mack GraniteAxle Forward model to the Environmental Research & Education Foundation (EREF) live auction taking place April 30 at WasteExpo 2014. Proceeds from the live auction will fund EREF’s research and education initiatives to help achieve sustainable waste management practices.
“We’re proud to again donate a Mack model to the EREF auction in support of their excellent work for the refuse and recycling industry,” said Curtis Dorwart, Mack refuse product marketing manager. “This is an opportunity for us to help further work that yields real benefits to those within the waste management business and the communities they serve.”
The Granite model, equipped with a Galbreath hoist and Pioneer tarping system for roll-off containers, features a Mack MP7-405M engine and six-speed Allison 4500 RDS transmission.
WasteExpo 2014 marks Mack’s 18th year donating to the EREF auction. EREF is a non-profit organization that funds and directs scientific research and educational initiatives for waste management practices to benefit industry participants and the communities they serve. WasteExpo takes place at Atlanta’s Georgia World Congress Center from April 29 to May 1.
“Mack’s level of support is huge and critical to the success of both the auction and to EREF’s programs,” said Bryan Staley, Ph.D., president and CEO of EREF. “The auction has been taking place for 20 years, and Mack has long been a part of it, which demonstrates a long-standing history of tremendous support to the foundation. On behalf of the EREF Board of Directors, we’re extremely grateful for Mack’s commitment to supporting industry research and education.”
