Remember to Shake Your Mailbox Before Winter


As you gear up for the snowy months, the Kent County Road Commission is reminding you to shake your mailbox to make sure it is winter-ready.

Before the snow falls, give your mailbox a good shake. If it moves easily, it likely needs maintenance to withstand the snow coming off plow trucks. Tighten screws and ensure your mailbox post and receptacle are secure.
