Editorial: Disposing of American Flags

Many of us take pride in displaying the American Flag in front of our homes and businesses.

But when it comes time to replace that flag, make sure you dispose of it the right way.

We commend Advanced Disposal in donating flags to the Boy Scouts, American Legion and other civic groups who make sure they are retired the proper way.

David Dent "We saw this wasn't being handled properly. We thought this is a way we could step in and be a part of our community. Take care of our American flag the way it is supposed to be."

If you have an American flag that needs replacing, don't throw it in your garbage can.

Simply drop it by your local Advanced Disposal office before September 11th.
