When to dispose of an American Flag & where can I do this?
The U.S. Flag Code says, "The flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem for display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning:. When an American flag is worn beyond repair, it should be retired in a respectful manner.
Boy Scout Troop 67 of Hilltown, PA holds an annual flag burning ceremony to pay respect and properly retire American flags.
Boy Scout, Andrew Williams has built a U.S. flag retirement box that will be housed in the lobby of Hilltown Township building, as his eagle scout project. Hilltown Township building address is: 13 West Creamery Road, Perkasie, PA 18944.
U.S. flags can be dropped off at this box, and Boy Scout Troop 67 will collect them and make sure they are properly retired.
