Mail Delivery to Resume

Mail Delivery to Resume

397984 01: Trenton Post Master Joseph Sautello holds a piece of irradiated mail during a news conference November 30, 2001 in Hamilton, NJ. The letter that Sautello is holding was irradiated at a private facility known as Ion Beam Applications (IBA) located in Bridgeport, NJ. Sautello announced that mail was detained at the Hamilton Post Office due to Anthrax contamination. Mail delivery is scheduled to resume beginning December 1, 2001 after first being irradiated with electron beam technology. Each mail item will then be placed in a bag with a letter describing the effects of the irradiation. Some pieces of mail could be discolored by the irradiation process.
