VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - Advanced Disposal was, as of Monday, helping its customers properly dispose of flags for free.
The company had begun accepting old flags. You could drop off your flag at your local Advanced Disposal office and the company would ship it off to a company that specializes in properly destroying flags.
Brian Hahn, the general manager at the Valdosta office, said he's glad to be a part of this.
"We're an American company. We're just proud to build off this for the community, and it's just one of those things that we, uh, we feel strongly about as a company, and want to support and make sure we're disposing of these flags in a proper way," Hahn said.
As of Monday, the company was planning to accept flags through September 11th.
