Where to Properly Dispose of American Flags in Fairfax County

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.

 

Government Center

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.

 

I-66 and I-95 Transfer Stations

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.

 

Police Stations

All Fairfax County Police stations accept American flags and they are collected twice a year by Police Honor Guard for proper disposal.
