Aren't people responsible for installing their own mail boxes? Shouldn't your neighbors put up their own mail box if you take theirs down from your property?

Thank you for the response. Let me provide answers:
Neighbors' mailboxes located on YOUR property are your property according to USPS and county officials. Unless there is a specific USPS easement for location of the mail boxes on YOUR property, the mailboxes are YOUR property, maintenance responsibility and liability. CHECK with your Postmaster to confirm.
USPS does not provide relocation services, or encourages relocation from group mail delivery on non-recipient properties. Neighbors could place mail boxes on their own property and might not be granted delivery to those mail boxes. Neighbors have to request a new delivery location from USPS and it is USPS' decision to grant delivery to the new location. CHECK with your Postmaster to confirm.
