The two blue walk-up mail boxes in front of the Post Office in Purcell have been permanently removed.
According to postal officials the two outside receptacles were removed since they did not do the volume necessary to keep them.
“We are pulling them out of efficiency,” Manager of Customer Relations Mark Waugh told The Purcell Register.
“They were walk-up boxes and in most cases when people are walking they go ahead and go into the post office to drop off their mail, which is a lot safer,” he said.
The post office here will continue to have the drop box in the alley behind the building.
Waugh said he is available for questions by calling his office at 405 815-2300.
