What are the mailbox placement requirements?

Mailbox placement

We don’t want to damage your mailbox. Please make sure it’s placed at least 8" from the curb and sits at least 42” high. 

Mailbox numbers

To comply with Township and emergency personnel regulations, 3" reflective address numbers must be on both sides of every mailbox. 

  • Black and colored mailboxes: use black numbers on a white background 
  • White mailboxes: use white numbers on a black background

Using the right reflective numbers will help emergency services to identify your home when needed.
