Clear your mailbox to ensure mail delivery

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - The U.S. Postal Service is urging customers to clear a safe, accessible path to their mailboxes to ensure mail delivery.

Mail carriers are instructed not to deliver to mailboxes and locations they consider too difficult to access or unsafe.

Residents should make sure their mailboxes are visible and free of snow and ice and make sure the path to the mailbox is clear.
