Full Answer

Recipients of unwanted packages are free to do what they want with them. If the package is opened, the receiver is free to keep what is found inside or throw it away. Returning a package received through the United Parcel Service requires a return label. All packages can be returned by UPS by taking the package to a UPS store, dropping it in a UPS drop box or giving it to any driver.

  • Q:

    How do you know if you have to sign for a UPS delivery?

    A:

    Until a package arrives, a recipient usually does not know whether or not a signature is required by UPS; the sender of the package usually determines if a signature is necessary by opting for Delivery Confirmation Signature Required service. Some UPS drivers may require that deliveries on their routes require signatures, but recipients who don't want to have to be home to sign for a package can opt for a special program that allows them to opt out of signing and that authorizes UPS to leave packages without signatures.
