Retire Your U.S. Flag Properly
 
Though the freedom, justice and sacrifice they represent will live forever, all U.S. flags eventually reach the end of their useful lives. If you have an old, faded or damaged flag, Advanced Disposal will be glad to dispose of it in the proper, dignified manner outlined by the United States Flag Code. Simply bring your flag to Advanced Disposal any time between June 1st and September 11th, and we will respectfully retire it as stipulated in the time-honored code. The service is provided at no charge by Advanced Disposal as a community service. We promise to treat your flag with all the honor and respect it deserves.
