Notice 180, Lobby Recycling Postcard

Postmasters participating in the Post Office Box Lobby Recycling Program must make sure that each PO Box cus­tomer is notified about the program using Notice 180, which is now available at the Material Distribution Center (MDC). The success of the lobby recycling program depends upon customer awareness.

Notice 180 invites PO Box customers to recycle their mail in specially designed recycling containers that the Postal Service™ recently deployed to 2,000 Post Offices having PO Box lobbies nationwide. These secure contain­ers carry the message, “Read, Respond, Recycle Your Mail.” Notice 180 also emphasizes the importance of recy­cling mail through the community’s recycling program, since some customers will take their mail home with them rather than recycle it in the Post Office™ lobby.

The Postal Service can make significant reductions in its solid waste disposal costs if customers recycle their mail after they have finished with it. By offering customers the opportunity to recycle their mail right in the lobby, USPS® can also play an important role in meeting customers’ envi­ronmental expectations.

Affected postmasters should use the eBuy on-catalog requisition system to order Notice 180 from the MDC. Search for items using the PSN number listed below (without the dashes). If your office doesn’t have access to eBuy, order using touch-tone order entry (TTOE): Call 800-273-1509.

Note: You must be registered to use TTOE. To register, call 800-332-0317, option 1, extension 2925, and follow the prompts to leave a message. (Please wait 48 hours after registering before placing your first order.) For complete TTOE ordering instructions, visit the Materials Customer Service website at or call 800-332-0317, option 4, option 4.
