    • Routing and stop number will be printed on the hold slip and in-transit slip.

    • Items will be sorted by route and placed in the delivery bins.

    • The bins will be labeled with Route and Stop number.

    • Several items for different routes can be put in one bin and labeled appropriately.

    • Packing material - plastic bags, boxes, tape and envelopes will not be used.

    • Heavier items will be placed at the bottom of the bin with media/ lighter items on the top.

    • Space will be left at the top of the bin so they can be stacked in the delivery van.

    • Documents like bills and flyers delivered between libraries will be placed in a manila envelope marked with route and stop number.

    • Items lost in-transit will be considered as 'cost of doing business'.
