Broken Mailbox Policy

All mailbox damage complaints must be received no later than 36 hours after the snow storm has ended.  All complaints will be verified by a Foreperson to see what should be done to correct the problem.

The condition of the mailbox and post will be checked.  If they were already in poor condition (rusted or rotted), they will not be replaced.

All residents will be informed of what action will be taken.

If repair is required, it will be completed as needed (screws, nails, or bolts to reassemble the mailbox or to reattach the mailbox to the post, etc).  Minor repairs will be done as soon as possible. 

When replacement is required, it will be a standard size metal or plastic mailbox (white or black in color).  A 4x4 wooden post, approximately 5' in length will be installed with the mailbox attached.  This will be the standard replacement in all applications in a time period of five to seven days.  All letters, numbers and any other hardware will be the responsibility of the homeowner, not Warren Township.

In situations where the homeowner is not satisfied with this standard replacement, the claim will be submitted to the Township insurance carrier for disposition.

If you have any questions, please contact the Department of Public Works at 908-753-1223.
