Getting to know RUM Project Administrator Clara Edney

1. How long have you been working at the RUM Project?

I have been at RUM for just over 13 years

2. What do you do at the RUM project?

As the Project administrator, I handle the day to day running of the office which includes accounts, payroll & correspondence but I guess most importantly I try to ensure a continual supply of RUM bins to pharmacies with constant contact with both the manufacturer and the wholesalers.

3. What do you love about working at the RUM project?

It is good to know that we provide a valuable service to the community which potentially benefits the environment.

4. Why is the RUM project so important?

The RUM project provides a great opportunity for the community to responsibly & easily dispose of unwanted & out of date medicines without damaging our environment.

5. What is your dream/vision for the RUM project?

I hope that more and more people can become aware of the Rum Project so that it becomes a natural part of the recycling life.

6. What is your go-to office snack?

My favourite at the moment is a handful of dry roasted almonds.
