Postal Service to Change Some Nebraska Pickup Times

Posted: Updated:

HASTINGS, Neb. (AP) — The U.S. Postal Service is now changing some mail pickup times across Nebraska as part of its plan to save more than $2 billion a year.

But the change could mean delays if your letter doesn't reach the mailbox on time. The Hastings Tribune reported that the deadline for mailing a letter in Hastings is being moved up two hours.

The agency is dealing with a sharp downturn in mail as more people use e-mail and other electronic messaging services, and last year it recorded $15.9 billion in losses.

Postal Service spokesman Brian Sperry says the self-supported agency is working to become as efficient as it can with these changes.

Most of the Postal Service's shortfall is related to payments for future retiree benefits it is required to make.
