As part of the 2011 USPS ® reorganization, the MRC operations moved to the Supply Management group under the Asset Management organization. Initial assessments of the MRC indicate significant opportunities to streamline and improve existing processes. Asset Management is sponsoring a Lean Six Sigma (LSS) project that covers the MRC’s processes and improvements to process inputs.
The MRC receives many items that do not meet the guidelines for acceptance or customer searches. A major project objective is to improve the quality of process inputs or items sent to the MRC from various postal facilities. The LSS team is developing communications pieces that provide guidance on how to prepare mail and other loose items to be sent to the MRC.

Exhibit 5, Boxing and Packaging Tips
The Box — Choose a box with enough room for cushioning material around the contents. If reusing a box, cover up or black out any old labels and markings.
Cushioning — Place cushioning around items. Close and gently shake the box to see if enough padding. Add more newspaper, packing foam, or plastic cushioning material if the items move around.
Customer Identification information — Place the delivery and return address information (recipient and sender) inside package prior to sealing . Insert address information inside books.
Sealing — Tape box shut and reinforce the seams with 2-inch-wide tape. Use clear or brown reinforced packing tape. Do not use cord, string, or twine because they will get caught in mail processing equipment.
Size — The weight of packages cannot exceed 70 pounds.
Correct Address — Using a complete and correct address is critical for efficient delivery. Always use ZIP + 4 ® when possible. Always use correct return address. Print or type clearly with a pen or permanent marker so the address is legible.
