PETERSBURG, Va. – Some Petersburg residents received their mail about 18 months late.Residents like Terry Ammons were notified that their mail was discovered in a dumpster Feb. 16.
One of the two pieces of mail was finally delivered; it was a year and a half old sympathy card, sent after he lost his father.
“I appreciate the Postal Service getting it to us now,” Ammons said. “That’s better than not getting it at all.”
While the 30 plus tubs of mail had been in the dumpster less than 48 hours, many want to know where their mail has been.
