Dear [Name of HR person or Manager]: 

It has been brought to my attention by [NAME] who is my immediate supervisor that the position of [Manager for Recycling] has become available, and I would like to express my interest in this position.

I have worked for [Environmental Solutions] for the past five years and have focused most of my time on the recycling aspect of the company. I would like to take a leadership role in this area and believe that my knowledge and experience will be an asset to the department.

I have made many contacts around the city who are interested in purchasing our recycled products, and I am confident that if I were in a position of leadership, I could expand the possibilities even more.
