Check Tips on keeping your mailbox safe

Snowplow season's tough on mailboxes

" Check your mailbox before snow falls to make sure it is sturdy and there is no prior damage that would make it break easier.

  • If possible, put a plastic cover around the post to make it harder to knock over.
  • Make sure your mailbox is on the same side of the road as all other mailboxes on your street and that it does not extend too far into the roadway.
  • If your mailbox is knocked over, call the county road commission office or the municipality, such as a local department of public works, that does plowing in your area.
  • Call the post office to get your mail held there so you can put up a new mailbox."
