Collegetown's Mailbox IconPrepaid packages for all carriers are always happily accepted as long as the person dropping them off certifies that they are abiding by HIPDR (Hazardous, Illegal, Prohibited, Dangerous, Restricted) regulations. Because we’re a USPS Approved Postal Provider, we’ve been designated as “Collegetown’s Mailbox” and serve as an official mail collection point for the area (which is why there isn’t a big blue mailbox on the streets of Collegetown). For specific carrier pickup times, please visit our Contact page.

    My package was not delivered to my address. The tracking number is 743635832240. It says it was delivered but it was not in my driveway or on either of my porches.

    • Hi, Emily. I’m sorry to hear that you’ve had trouble with a package! In tracking it, it seems that this was a package sent from Kent, WA to Trumansburg, NY via FedEx. I’d suggest you call FedEx at 800-GO-FEDEX and speak with a representative there. They’ll be able to request a driver follow-up and assist in finding your lost package. We’d love to help you if we could, but FedEx asks that either the shipper or receiver initiate package follow-up for security reasons. Since this was not a package sent through us, we must refer you directly to FedEx for assistance. Good luck!
