US Postal Service to open ‘recycling’ facility in Hyderabad
A new US Postal facility is set to be built in Hyderabadi to cater to recycling needs of India’s rural communities.
The US Postal Services (USPS) is building the facility in Kalyan in Karnataka’s Rajasthan district and will be used for sending out postcards and other items that can be recycled.
The facility will also be used to send out postcard, posters and other packaging materials that are recyclable.
A special facility will be set up to cater for the postal employees.
A postcard sent to Hyderabad will be returned to its original sender at the facility.
A ‘recycles depot’ will be built inside the facility where the items will be recycled, said Amit Nandini, general manager of the US Postal service in India.
A team of five US Postal employees will be deployed to Hyderabad to begin work in November.
Nandinis added that the USPDS has also set up a similar facility in Delhi and other cities.
“The facility is part of the Postal Service’s strategy to create employment opportunities for the local community in India, which is the country’s third-largest post office market, after the United States and China,” he said.
“As the largest post office in the world, the Postal Services will provide high-quality, low-cost mail service to all post-consumer customers in India.”
The USP, which has more than 20 million post offices worldwide, has also launched the ‘postcards’ program.
Postcards are mail sent from US post offices to a customer’s mailbox.
Each postcard will contain information about the customer’s address, the mailing address and other details.
The mail will be sent via a courier service to the customer at the customer�s local post office.
The Postal Service says that the program is a great way to connect people in remote areas with other postal customers in the area.
