The Postal Service has been trying to round up missing equipment - trays, tubs, pallets - because it costs about $50 million each year to replace them. Postal Inspectors have found locations with several thousand stockpiled all across the nation.
When you become aware of it, you start noticing them everywhere. The photo at right is actually a screen in a nursing school classroom. The subject on screen was about the various equipment parts and pieces being stored, but in the middle of the photo, on the bottom shelf is plainly a United States Postal Service tub. Why is it being used to hold medical equipment?
The photo at left is some USPS pallets that were reclaimed from a farm in Nebraska where they had been put to use as a make-shift fence.
What's the most unusual place you have ever seen USPS trays, tubs or pallets?
If you see postal equipment that has gone astray call the Hotline to report it at 1-866-330-3404.
