    If I'm not here to get a package that's too big to fit through my letterbox, Royal Mail take it back to their office and I have to go and collect it. Does anyone know how long they keep it before they dispose it? I'm going away soon so i need to know.

    They keep recorded/special delivery items for one week, and all other items for three weeks before returning to the sender. They might be the Royal Mail, but they aren't going to trash your mail.

    I think they keep it for 3 weeks before returning it to the sender, less than that if it was recorded delivery. I don't know what they do with it if it doesn't have a return address though.
