Hi, with the amount of mail being sent now days a drop box is a total waste. Most all of them have been removed. Within about a five mile radius, we have about 15 Post Offices so we just go there when needed. And that is about six times a year. Drop boxes have been hit by cars, lit on fire, filled with paint, blown up with fireworks, and sometimes someone's cat was put in one. I would remove them too. I forgot to mention that they have to be repainted quite often in some neighborhoods due to graffiti. Our mail/drop boxes were removed before we got any Wal-Marts.
