There is a lot of junk mail that people with post office boxes leave in trash or other spaces to clean-up. Provide shredders with a shute access to behind USPS large bin to shred junk mail and then it can be used to help package future boxes that need mailed. Foam peanuts are not environmentally sound, cost money, and the USPS can re-use junk mail/advertisement flyers as safe packaging alternative.
Put us back under Federal, eliminate the Unions, and you will save millions. With all the grievances being filed and settlements being paid the Postal Service would benefit by doing this.
I would like my mail delivered every other day or twice a week. There should extra fees for daily or special delivery.
Post offices continue to cater to people who want special stamps. Let these people order the stamps on line. It takes too much time for those who want to use the post office for other reasons to have someone going through a catalogue of stamps to pick what they want. Just give people forever stamps when buying stamps. There are too many other cutbacks at the post offices to make customers wait.
Post Offices should be closed on Saturdays (but leave the lobbies open for mail deposit, PO Box access, and automated postage dispensing). To compensate for being closed on Saturday and to allow people who work when the PO is open during the week access to full PO services, adjust the hours of public operation to be 12p - 8p - at least for one day of the week
Moving the mail boxes could be performed by a public service group like the Boy/Girl Scouts or have the prison work groups move them. The Postal Service could provide standard mail boxes/posts... more »
Since 911 we very seldom use the USPS for our mail or shipping. (Everything has to be scanned, etc.) I am told the gov't has a contract with FedEx so we pay over $5 to send a single letter instead of $.44 and the same with packages.
Thank you... more »
Have gone to the post office to buy a stamp, and my receipt is about 10 to 12 inches long. We need to go green by not cutting so many trees for receipts and save unnecesary money. Just put a sign up of the information trying to be relayed.
I propose to have post offices open only 4 days a week (Mon, Tues, Thurs,Fri). Have the employees work 4 nine-hour days. (Yes, they will lose some hours - offer them paid lunch hours for those days). This will save the federal government money on everything from electricity, fuel (25% off the top)as well as a reduction in man hours.
