Have you ever lost an item in the mail? The Mail Recovery Center (MRC), located in Atlanta, GA, is the last place undeliverable mail is sent prior to final disposition. The MRC will attempt to match the items with lost item claims customers file through their local post offices.
If MRC staff is able to identify the sender or recipient, staff members repack and ship the mailpiece. If not, the mail content is retained for an established holding period. Once the holding period elapses, the MRC sells, auctions, donates, or discards the items.
