Mail from ZIP codes beginning with “458” will no longer be processed in Toledo, but rather in Columbus beginning July 8, the U.S. Postal Service said.
Several years ago, the Postal Service closed its Lima processing center, sending mail from the region to Toledo. In 2012, the agency announced it was consolidating further and planned to move Lima-area mail from Toledo to Columbus.
Once the process is completed, the only mail processing centers open in Ohio will be in Cleveland, Columbus and Cincinnati, Van Allen said.
By 2014, processing centers in Akron, Athens, Canton, Chillicothe, Dayton, Ironton, Steubenville, Toledo and Youngstown will be closed.
