KWWL -

It can be a hard job, carrying mail day-in and day-out. Letter carriers work in rain, snow, sleet and shine, delivering you important letters and packages.

This year the Postal Service is asking for your help with the safe delivery of mail. They ask you to keep walkways and sidewalks clear of ice and snow. This will reduce the risk of falling or slipping.  

Letter carriers are instructed to use good judgment while delivering mail. If they believe a potential hazard exists, they have the right to hold mail to that address. 

The Postal Service asks customers to:

  • Clear enough snow from curbside boxes to allow mail trucks to reach the box
  • Clear walkways to avoid slips or falls. Also keep overhangs clear
  • If you practice these steps, you should can be assured you will receive your mail in a timely manner.
