2 NJ Facilities Affected As Postal Service To Begin Closing Plants This Summer [VIDEO]

The nearly bankrupt U.S. Postal Service is moving ahead with plans to close dozens of mail processing centers, including 2 in New Jersey, saying it can no longer wait for Congress to decide how to cut postal costs.

Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe says postal operations are simply too big given declining mail volume. The agency will consolidate 140 mail processing centers within the next year, including 48 this August.

Facilities in Eatontown and Little Egg Harbor will close and be consolidated with the Trenton & Bellmawr facilities respectively.

Most will occur next January and February, after the busy election and holiday mail season. Another 89 closings would occur in 2014.

 

 

The Postal Service had previously planned to close 252 mail processing centers beginning this summer but was awaiting congressional action.

With Congress stalled over a bill, the mail agency say it is moving forward, but now over a longer timeframe.
