As Australia’s leading network operator for container deposit schemes, TOMRA Cleanaway recognises that convenient and accessible networks of refund points need both innovative and leading technology, as well as a passionate consumer focused team.

With the announcement of TOMRA Cleanaway as West Zone operator for Victoria’s Container Deposit scheme occurring just over 12 months ago, this is an exciting time of year for us to celebrate a number of 1 year anniversaries within our Victorian team.

One of our team celebrating their one-year milestone with us is Claire McCormack, our Communications and Engagement Manager for Victoria.

Supporting strong partnerships

Claire hit the ground running in Victoria, playing an important part in TOMRA Cleanaway’s rollout of the CDS Vic West Zone. Claire continues to utilise her experience in marketing and knowledge gained from her Masters of Environment and Sustainability to empower Victorians to participate in the circular economy and deliver positive environmental outcomes.

When asked about a highlight during her first year of employment, Claire explains, “The opportunity to travel the CDS Vic West Zone to meet with and talk to our operational partners, site hosts, and scheme participants has been an absolute highlight. Hearing firsthand the positive impacts the scheme is having on people from all walks of life and getting to share their stories is one of the best parts of my role.”

Providing our Team the opportunity to grow with us important, and when we asked Claire what kinds of professional training opportunities she would like for the coming year her response was ‘typically Claire’, “While I would love additional formal training, I’m very much looking forward to continued mentoring from Michelle Mandl and other senior leaders from our across our team and network.”

Thanks Claire for your enthusiasm, vision and commitment. Congratulations on celebrating one year with the TOMRA Cleanaway Team, and we look forward to celebrating many more anniversary milestones with you!
