Can I get package delivery companies to just leave the package rather than leaving an InfoNotice/"you weren't home, we'll try again tomorrow" slips?

I moved within my town from a less-busy street to a main road (but a different zip code, if that matters). At my previous address, when I received packages in the mail delivery services would leave them on my non-enclosed front porch area, no signature required. At my new address, 95% of the time they never leave the packages unless someone answers the door and can sign for it. Since my boyfriend and I are usually at work we're not there to answer, and I keep coming home to those sticky notes that say "Nobody was home, sign this and we'll try again tomorrow!"
On one hand, this makes sense because my new street is busy, BUT on the other hand I have an enclosed front-porch-area that the delivery person has to enter in order to leave the notice on my door. Grr! Is there some reason they can't just leave the package in front of my door anymore? And more importantly, does anyone know if there's a way I can somehow get my address status changed from "needs a signature every time" to "just leave the package there", maybe through my town or through each specific delivery company? It would be nice not to wait the extra day for my swiftly shipped Amazon Prime and Zappos packages! This is in Massachusetts.
