As of January 1, 2015, customers who have provided us with a current email address can receive courtesy Reminder Notices 3 days before items become overdue. Reminders notices are sent by email and optional text message only. Phone or mailed notification is not available for almost overdue reminder notices. NOTE: These courtesy reminder notices should not be solely relied upon as reminders of item due dates. We have no control over email or text once it leaves our system.

To get reminder notices, add or change your email address through the My Account section of our home page
