Help USPS Deliver: Clear Debris around Mailbox

GEORGIA — The Postal Service is asking postal customers in ZIP Codes beginning with 313, 314, 315 and 316 to help carriers provide uninterrupted mail service in the wake of Hurricane Idalia.

The accumulation of debris around mail receptacles can cause delays in delivery, and in some areas, contractors removing the debris are taking mail receptacles along with the debris. Residents are urged to pile away debris from their mailboxes.

Residents who placed their mail on hold for 30 days or filed a temporary Change of Address due to Hurricane Idalia must replace their damaged mail receptacles. When their mailbox has been replaced, customers must call 1-800-ASK-USPS (1-800-275-8777) to reinstate delivery.
