Pittsburgh NDC still closed a week after mercury spill

WARRENDALE (KDKA) — A postal facility in Warrendale is still closed one week after a mercury spill, and some residents in the area still haven’t received their mail.

Individuals dressed in Hazmat uniforms appeared to be loading packages into a non-postal truck at the U.S. Postal Service’s Network Distribution Center facility in Warrendale on Monday.

This was one week after a mercury spill at the site forced its closure, disrupting the delivery of packages mailed to and from southwestern Pennsylvania.

“We’re going on vacation next month. I [ordered] some simple beach towels and stuff, you know, water shoes for the kids, everything pretty much we’re gonna need for vacation,” Edward Rick, of Oakdale, told KDKA money editor Jon Delano on Monday.

But Rick says they’re stuck in Warrendale, along with a valuable coin he ordered.
