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.

* Editor's note: HDC's head of operations, Robert Ward, owned up to the council's error. Mrs Searle's address had not been noted and that oversight had not been followed up. He promised that she would have her blue bin before this issue of The Hunts Post was published.
