You want to make sure it looks good and if it doesn't look good, take the time to make any necessary improvements.

The United States Postal Service Reminds New Jersey Residents to Have Good Working Mailboxes

Give your mail carriers a good working mailbox for them to place your mail in.

If your shrubs are overgrown and cover the entire area make sure you trim them back so there's easy access to the mailbox.

Also, if your mailbox looks crooked, it's not properly bolted to the post or it's about to fall over make sure you fix it.

According to the USPS, it's important to provide mailboxes that are:

  • Approved by the Postmaster General.
  • Designed to protect your mail from the weather.
  • Safe to use.
  • Conveniently located.
  • Neat in appearance.
