The Postal Service asks that steps and walkways be cleared of snow and ice after the storm so that their letter carriers may resume delivery safely and efficiently. Icy areas should also be salted or sanded.
Curbside mailboxes should be shoveled out enough so that carriers can deliver or collect mail without having to leave or back up their vehicles.  The area near the mailbox should be cleared in a half-moon shape to give the carrier and passing drivers full visibility.
