Some Post Office locations may have extended hours leading up to the holidays, while others may have limited hours on Christmas Eve, Thursday, Dec. 24. Although there are no plans for limited hours on New Year's Eve, Thursday, Dec. 31, customers should always check with their local Post Office for hours of operation.

Blue collection boxes with final collection times before 12 p.m. (noon) will not be affected by an early closing Dec. 24. If a box has a final collection time after 12 p.m., its mail may be picked up earlier. For mail pickup Dec. 24, customers are asked to put their mail into blue collection boxes by noon regardless of the final collection times posted on the box. As a reminder, blue collection boxes are not serviced on Sundays.

Customers who have items to mail after the scheduled pickup times Dec. 24 should visit the Postal Locator on to find local Post Office locations that may be open later.

The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.
