American Flag Disposal Drop-Off
Date Posted: Friday, June 1st, 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.
As of 6/11/18, we have collected several flags and they have been taken to VFW Mason Dixon Post 7234 for disposal. Thank you to everyone that has dropped flags off!
