See this Shake Your Mailbox brochure for more information, and how you should plow around your mailbox.

  • See also our Mailbox Installation Guide on the Documents & Forms page.

  • During the winter snowplowing season, it's important that all residents be aware of special issues during winter operations. See here for details.
