The trouble is called JUNK MAIL.
That's a huge chunk.
I would extend the UPS and FedEx contracts and let them distribute mail to the local post offices. They already handle the long distance mail but just don't want to get into the door to door delivery business.
My local PO has 1 full time person, 1 full time rural route driver shared between two offices, and one part time Saturday person.
I've seen urban post offices and don't want to hear any crap about how efficient they are.

Same here but 2 carriers cover over 135 miles of route , out of this one country office.
