I RECENTLY received the refuse and recycling newsletter from the district council and was amazed to read that the district recycles 51 per cent of its household waste.

This is a tremendous achievement and one of which we should all be proud.

I think that the Huntingdonshire District Council (HDC) staff and councillors all deserve our thanks and congratulations for playing their part in making HDC one of the most environmentally responsible in the country.

So, well done - and may the figures be even better this coming year.
