BETHESDA, Md. (FOX 5 DC) – Concerns about the mail have been high for many months now since reports that the U.S. Postal Service was scaling back in overtime and was also removing sorting equipment.
Mail collection boxes are also an issue with some within the District and parts of Maryland, found to be overflowing.
FOX 5 viewer Megan Henley Kinney of Bethesda shot cellphone video of two different locations and shared them with us.
Kinney said, the mail at the Westlake post office located in Bethesda, was supposed to be collected by 3:30 p.m Saturday afternoon but people’s mail continued to pile up until at least Monday morning.
“So I went inside and the two inner boxes were packed too so I just kept my postcards with me and went back home,” Kinney explained.
