World Trade Center mail

According to the Associated Press and other sources, the U.S. Postal Service announced yesterday that hundreds of pieces of mail addressed to the World Trade Center still arrive each day.

The Postal Service said the mail is probably from companies who have not updated their mailing lists. As a result, the post office has accumulated stacks of mail addressed to people who used to work in the towers.

Officials say most of the mail will be returned to the sender, while some will be sent for shredding. The WTC, which used to have its own zip code, collected more than one million pieces of mail each week.
