Mail pick-up location for Denham Springs residents changes
DENHAM SPRINGS – Denham Springs residents with the 70726 zip code who were impacted by the recent flood no longer have to pick up their mail at the Baton Rouge Mail Processing Plant, located on Bluebonnet Road.
Instead, residents are advised to go to the Denham Springs Post Office located at 140 Del Orleans to pick up their mail and packages. A temporary tent will serve as the pickup point for P.O. Box customers and for anyone who has a received a "Left Notice" form in their mailbox recently.
The P.O. Box pick up service is available seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Those picking up must provide a form of photo identification. Customers can also buy stamps, mail packages, letter and other retail services, however those services will only be offered six days a week Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The Postal Service will deliver as long as a mail receptacle is present and properly placed. If a mailbox was damaged or knocked down during the recent flooding, please ensure that another mailbox is reinstalled so the delivery can be made. If you are unable to receive mail at your home or business, you can fill out a Change of Address (COA) form to temporarily forward your mail. COA forms are available at the mobile retail unit at the Denham Springs Post Office.
