USPS urges customers to clear out snow, ice around mailboxes

MADISON, Wis. - The United States Postal Service is urging customers to keep the areas around their mailboxes clear of snow and ice. 

Mail delivery may be delayed if conditions are too hazardous for carriers to safely do their jobs. 

If your mailbox is near your door, the Postal Service says the path to it should be free from ice and snow. If it's along a road or street, the snow around it should be removed so the carrier can reach it from their vehicle. 

Blue collection boxes also need to be kept clear for customers to deposit their mail and for the Postal Service to collect the mail for delivery. Residents and businesses with collection boxes near their property are asked to keep them clear of snow and ice.
