Blue collection boxes with final collection times before 12 p.m. (noon) will not be affected by early closing on Dec. 24. If a box has a final collection time after 12 p.m., its mail may be picked up earlier. For mail pickup on Dec. 24, please put your mail into blue collection boxes by noon regardless of the final collection times posted on the box. As a reminder, blue collection boxes are not serviced on Sundays.

Customers who have items to mail after the scheduled pick-up times on Dec. 24 should visit the Postal Locator on tools.usps.com to find local Post Offices which may be open late.
