US Postal Service may end door-to-door delivery to save money

CLEVELAND - A proposal to overhaul the US Postal Service could save billions of dollars, but end door-to-door service.

The bill is currently being proposed in the House of Representatives and has the support of the postal service.

Under the plan, residents would pick up their own mail from a cluster box in their neighborhood, rather than getting it at their front door.

Ending door-to-door delivery would save the cash-strapped postal service about $4.5 billion dollars a year.

However, critics think it is a bad idea and would be disruptive for the elderly and disabled.
