American Flag Disposal Drop-Off

Date Posted: Tuesday, May 8th, 2018

When an American flag becomes worn, faded, torn or soiled, it should be retired and replaced with a new flag. There are several ways to respectfully dispose of the American flag without showing disgrace. The most common method is burning the torn or tattered flag in a special ceremony.

As a service to the community, the Town will collect any American flags that need to be retired or replaced and make arrangements for proper disposal with the respect and gravity that it is entitled.  Drop off boxes are located in both the Town Hall lobby and the Public Safety Building lobby.
