I could really use a mailbox that has a trash can within the mailbox. I receive mail notifications prior to the mail arrival. Today’s notification indicates all items received are junk mail. There is no need to visit the mailbox today. It would be nice to move the mail to another compartment out of view to prepare for the next day’s delivery. If by chance, some important was delivered, I could check the trash when I physically empty the trash can. I live on a forty-acre lot and the mailbox is two miles away.
This first sounded silly to me BUT if you were to simply rephrase it as a “protected compartment drop” it makes much more sense. (Someone could come up with a catchier phrase.) There could be all kinds of uses to protect/acknowledge accumulated mail, whether or not you intend to ultimately trash it.
Very good idea. My initial and main concern was discarding junkmail. Version 0.1 involved a flamethrower but that might cause insurance issues and lawsuits.
If I had any marketing experience, I might have thought of your idea. I am more of a problem solver (tech) with a focused, tunnelvision approach to resolution. I am always open to other’s opinions after the fact.
Amazon is amazing. I should have looked there first. Or even tried Google.
I was going with the Wyze option because they are inexpensive and could make anything. Maybe I could use the gun safe as a mailbox?
I like the mailbox on Amazon for $123. I need to provide an easy drop-off for the postman or postwoman. The $1499 model is a bit costly. Guess I need to check to learn if it is okay with the Post Office.
I’m just not going to trash mail w/o looking at it first so a separate compartment would be a waist. I just want not have to go to the mailbox if nothing of interest has arrived. The USPS Informed Delivery does that for me and cost nothing. It also does not need a battery, or maintenance.
That’s good for you but maybe not everyone. Others might want the ability to secure all mail without having to pick it up right away (most larger apartment buildings work that way but your local mailman might not want to rummage for your ranch house mailbox key). And the existing secure box solutions cited above do NOT need a battery or maintenance… Choices are good.
