To the Editor: The following is a letter which was sent to Mr. Herbst: With the budget season upon us, the Long Hill Garden Club would like to present the case for retaining the position of the recycling coordinator. There are many compelling reasons, based on the impact that Robin Bennett makes on the community of Trumbull that are being felt not only today, but also into the foreseeable future. In less than a year\u2019s time, the recycling coordinator has made tremendous inroads across several residential and commercial outreach efforts that have appealed to both the hearts and minds of those being totally recycling conscious. These awareness efforts are the driving force behind more recycling engagement across all people who live and work in Trumbull. The town benefits from both a monetary and a \u201cbetter place to live\u201d standpoint. Everyone wins in this scenario! Robin Bennett has not only elevated the need for recycling from an awareness perspective \u2014 she\u2019s motivated action. Youngsters in schools are learning the need for recycling at a very young age through her efforts. Trumbull\u2019s environmental recycling footprint has been extended to electronic and fluorescent bulb recycling, through smart contract negotiation. Her work with civic groups has built a strong base of \u201crecycling ambassadors\u201d who are spreading the recycling message throughout the community. During the past year, she\u2019s built relationships and put programs in place that are the environmental seeds from which Trumbull will benefit for generations to come. It would be a shame to lose the momentum that has been built during this time. Robin has been able to change the way people think and act about recycling. Keeping this position with Robin in place is good for everyone \u2013 from the Trumbull environment to the people who live in this great town.\u00a0 It is a win\/win scenario in the greatest sense.\u00a0 Thank you for your consideration.
