mailing tubs as you need as long as the individual
weight does not exceed 25 pounds. We ask that
you call the Post Office at 2293 if you have a heavy
mailing going out so we can plan our pick ups
accordingly. Large mailings can only be picked up in
USPS mail buckets or trays. Please call us in
advance if you need them delivered to you.
