Mailbox Replacement Policy
This policy pertains to mailboxes damaged by Township snowplows.
The mailbox will be checked to see if a simple repair can be made. If so, this will be done. If the post is broken, but the mailbox can be reused, our workers will remount your mailbox on a new wooden post. If the mailbox cannot be reused, it will be replaced with a new mailbox. The work will be scheduled as soon as possible after the ground thaws.
The Township cannot participate in the replacement of the luxury type mailboxes which are often installed by homeowners. These mailboxes far exceed the budget limitation of the Township. If you choose to install such a mailbox you do so at your own risk. The limits of the replacement by the Township are as outlined above. The Township does not provide lettering or numbering on the box.
To report a mailbox damaged by the Department of Public Works equipment please fill out a Service Request Mailbox Form or contact the Department of Public Works at 973-983-2891.
