WHEN I requested a blue bin from Huntingdonshire District Council on January 8 to recycle my dry waste, I was told there would be a six week wait before delivery.
As it is now March and still no sign of the blue bin, I called HDC to inquire when I should expect delivery.
After checking, they informed me that, according to their files, I had already received it. As this was incorrect, I was told they would order me another one. I asked how much longer would I have to wait for this one - four weeks.
It will, therefore, be April before I receive my blue recycle bin.
