INDIANA, (WOWO) – As freezing temperatures and snowy forecasts continue, the U.S. Postal Service is asking customers to help letter carriers deliver mail safely.
Customers receiving door delivery should clear snow and ice from sidewalks, stairs and mailboxes. Curbside delivery customers should remove snow piles left by snow plows in order to keep access to their mailboxes clear.
Residents and businesses with blue collection boxes near their property are being asked to keep them clear of snow and ice as well.
“Snow and ice make delivery dangerous and slow,” said Greater Indiana District Manager Todd Hawkins in a press release. “Maintaining a clear path to the mail box – including steps, porches, walkways and street approach – will help letter carriers maintain consistent delivery service, and help them get the mail delivered.”
