Proper American Flag Disposal
There is a proper and respectful way to dispose of weathered American flags.
The City is assisting in these services by offering drop boxes at several city locations throughout the year. Locations include City Hall, the Police Station HQ and Health Department.
"Every day it is important to respect our great Nation's Flag. During Flag Day it is important to remember to properly and respectfully dispose of a flag that becomes faded, torn or weather-beaten,"
Richard A. Isbell, the Mayor's Veterans Affairs Coordinator.
If interested in having a drop-box in your area, or for veteran related issues, please contact the City of Columbus Veterans Affairs Coordinator.
