60. Mail Courier Residential Collection Requirement

Part of a postal worker’s job should include picking up/accepting outgoing mail from residential mailboxes. But in order to prevent residents from using this service as free mail pickup for a home-based businesses or other operations resulting in large amount of outgoing mail that can potentially swamp the postal worker, perhaps there should be a maximum limit to the number of pieces of mail that the postal worker is allowed to pick up, such as 3 pieces of outgoing mail per day.

Mailboxes should also be designed in such a way so that outgoing mail can be clipped securely somewhere near or on the mailbox, but in a way that doesn’t obstruct the delivery of the mail or anything else.
