Notes

If the office to which the mail is to be delivered is closed and locked, the mail will be taken back to the mailroom. Mail not ready for pickup may be delivered to the mailroom by 3:45 p.m. for that day's outgoing mail.

All large mailings, 100 items or more, require a notice to the mailroom supervisor. This will allow time to make necessary arrangements for postage on the postage meter.
