Old Glory sometimes gets old, tattered and torn.
If you have an American flag like this, you can now properly dispose of it at a few county government locations.
When you walk into the lobby of the Government Center (12000 Government Center Parkway, Fairfax), you’ll see a new flag disposal box located near the main information desk. The American Legion will collect flags and conduct a Flag Retirement Ceremony at its site.
Flag disposal boxes are now located at the I-66 Transfer Station and I-95 Landfill Complex and are available during residential hours. The American Legion will collect flags and conduct a Flag Retirement Ceremony at its site.
All Fairfax County Police stations accept American flags and they are collected twice a year by Police Honor Guard for proper disposal.
