USPS: Help keep letter carriers safe

NEW JERSEY – The US Postal Service will make every reasonable effort to provide retail and delivery service to customers when it is safe to do so – neither rain, nor sleet, nor snow.

To assist in the mission of safe and timely delivery to customers, the public can help in keeping walkways, sidewalks, and approaches to mailboxes clear from snow and ice. Mounds of snow and patches of ice in front of mailboxes are a barrier to safe delivery.

Residents should maintain a clear path to their mailbox — including steps, porches, walkways and street approach — to help maintain consistent delivery service. Customers receiving curbside delivery from employee vehicles should also ensure snow plowed against mailboxes is cleared.

Customers with questions about their mail service can call the USPS Customer Care Center at 1-800-ASK-USPS (1-800-275-8777).
