The United States Postal Service (USPS) has warned people not to use blue boxes on certain dates. The question arises as to why the USPS bothers to keep these boxes.
The USPS warning suggested a way for people to stay out of trouble. “If a customer simply sends U.S. mail using a retail service or a drop slot inside the wall rather than leaving it outside overnight or over the weekend, it will be subject to identity theft and checks after business hours.” A blue collection box that you mail to thieves in is not so appealing.
As a solution, people have to go to their local post office or box their mail after the last shipping time.
USPS has already spent and lost a lot of money. In the blue box, the truck must receive mail twice a day. Especially since he has over 30,000 offices in the USPS, it’s hard to imagine a more expensive system. It also has over 600,000 full-time employees, many of whom deliver mail. One very common reason is the inefficiency of delivering mail six days a week.
It might just be a gesture to save money, but USPS can turn blue boxes into junk. The Postal Service’s warning covers holidays and Sundays, but the problem is he exists all week. Customers have to worry about whether their checks or other valuable letters will reach their intended destination.
Blue boxes, like so many things, are becoming a thing of the past.
