Cudahy WI — With less than three weeks until Christmas, the holiday season will be getting extremely busy in the coming days. One way to beat the rush at the Cudahy Post Office is for customers to drop all their holiday cards and letters in postal blue collection boxes, especially on Sundays, December 8 and 15.
“This is an easy and secure way for our customers to drop their mail,” said Cudahy Postmaster Mark Groshek. “This will also help us process their mail sooner the next day. It’s more efficient using postal blue collection boxes because carriers regularly pick up the mail inside. This gets sorted and taken to the Post Office and on to our processing plants for fast service.”
Customers should also remember to deposit all cards and letters loosely when they drop holiday mail into a blue collection box. They should never wrap cards or letters together with string, bow, rubber bands or paper clips, said Groshek.
“This can slow down mail processing and possibly damage postal machines,” said Groshek. “But just as important, it can damage the cards and letters destined for loved ones. So whether it’s a few pieces of mail or hundreds, customers should avoid using any kind of wrapping. This will help prevent damage and get them to their destination sooner.”
