Video: Dumpster-dropping mail carrier fired, may face charges

FORT MYERS -A mail carrier who was caught on camera throwing mail into a Lee County dumpster has been fired – and that may not be the worst thing that happens to her.

NBC2 first showed you surveillance video Monday of the carrier tossing the mail into a dumpster outside Luigina’s Italian Restaurant on US-41 in San Carlos Park.

Special agents from the Postal Service’s Inspector General’s Office on Monday were still trying to figure out who the worker was, but once she was identified, she lost her job.

    was she overburden with mail, or just had to be back by 5? not worth her job though. and we all know what supervisors are up to. remember carriers every thing is on camera and goes viral.

    Fire the Supervisor as well. I sure that is where this problem started. 99.9% of Carriers would deliver if given the time and support.

    You get what you pay for. CCA program is going to be the demise of the post office not the savior.

    At $5 for a sure-fire delivery per letter, PONY EXPRESS looking like was not so expensive after all. Late charges on bills can mount up & HEADACHES so pony rider system looking more viable all the time In June Pleasant Grove had one dumpster full of mail.

    $5 for a HALF OUNCE letter in 1860 would be like paying $112 today. What a bargain!!!!

    Supervisor told me that there are NO STANDARDS for hiring CCA’s today. If they pass the drug test and no criminal record………….THEY ARE HIRED!!!. The “demise of the Post Office”, yeah, I agree, but hey, they are “saving money” so who gives a crap about service………….. The best are the 350+ pound folks who come walking in the door as carriers. Might as well sign them up for full disability as soon as they get their 90 days in…………..its only a matter of time.
