Oddball case

PH41 118 states (on the box) that collections are "15 minutes before ferry departs".

Used together with opening_hours

I found some amenity=post_box which have collection_times=* and opening_hours=*. opening_hours=* are probably used to describe the accessibility of the post box or amenity=post_box is wrong (amenity=post_office would be better in those cases).

overpass turbo

Most post boxes (which are tagged correct) use opening_hours=24/7 so there are accessible all the time. Not sure if this is necessary because almost all post box are accessible 24/7 after my knowledge. 24/7 is the default, if other opening_hours=* apply for one post box, then they can be specified. What do you think?--Ypid (talk) 16:57, 5 November 2013 (UTC)

Starting at some hour

I found a post box by the operator Pin AG in Berlin, Germany. There is written "Montag bis Freitag ab 18:00 Uhr" which means "starting at 18 o'clock". How can I specify this?

The answer to this question can be found in the first paragraph of Key:collection_times where the following is stated: "The syntax is the same as for opening hours, including the hyphen because there are post boxes which are emptied several (undefined) times or one (undefined) time in a certain time frame.". I would write it like this collection times=Mo-Fr 18:00-22:00 open "Specified as collection occurs once after 18:00. But not after 22:00 (From own experience)". Please use the evaluation tool to check if your value is correct.--Ypid (talk) 16:39, 18 November 2014 (UTC)
