BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The US Postal Service in Boca and nationwide is asking customers who may have accidentally permanently borrowed mail pallets and those plastic mail tubs to return them — no questions asked. As the Postal Service tries to cut costs and save money, it’s announcing that it spent nearly $50-million over the past year to replace equipment that was never returned.
If you happen to be looking at equipment right now in your office (or dorm) and think you’ll get in trouble for the late return, worry not: First, this is the post office. No one really expects anything to happen quickly. Second, there is an amnesty program in effect starting tomorrow and running through November 26th.
For more information, telephone 1-866-330-3404. The Post Office is also reminding folks that a misuse of postal property can lead to a $1,000 fine and 3 years in prison.
