Properly Disposing of the American Flag


The Flag Matters

Air Force Veteran SSgt. Phil Herrin (Ret.) with the American Flag.

Our crews have been noticing American Flags, some old and some brand new and still in the packaging, that have been thrown into our trash carts lately. We know that we live in a very patriotic community and that many of the families that we serve are connected to the armed services. And we know that we all get busy and that properly retiring a flag may not be feasible for everyone. 

Our parents taught us to never bring up a problem without suggesting a solution – so, here is what we are going to do in order to ensure that the Stars and Stripes are properly handled on our watch: 

We Will Dispose of Your Flags

If you or someone you know needs to retire a flag but don’t have the time or opportunity to handle the effort yourself,  please place the flag  in a box or other appropriate container and clearly label it as an American Flag. Please then place the flag on top of the closed garbage cart lid, so that it is completely separate from your trash in your cart. Once it is put out, our garbage operations personnel will place the flag inside the cab of their garbage truck and bring it to our operations yard at the end of their shift. Our field operations supervisors will then collect the American flags from our drivers and place them in a holding area to be delivered to an appropriate volunteer group – including the VFW, American Legion, Boy Scout Troops or Knights of Columbus- for proper disposal. 

Alternatives for Flag Drop Off

Additionally, Flags can be dropped off at our Baker Location (5750 Highway 4 in Baker) and our Milton Location (6111 US 90 in Milton) between 8:30 and 4 on weekdays. 

We want to be clear, we know that the overwhelming majority of our customers are disposing of their flags properly already. We want to offer this service as a way to make proper disposal of the colors as easy as possible so that every flag and what it stands for is given due respect,. 

Thank you for your continued support of Adams Sanitation – and for your commitment to honor our Nation’s flag.

Waste Pro Lawsuit – Feeling All ‘Tingley’ Inside

According to her bio, one of Waste Pro’s Lawyer’s other special skills is “quietly handling volatile matters, so they remain undiscovered by the media.”

Nothing says ‘we’re doing the right thing’ more than hiring a lawyer that knows how to hide stuff from the media! And of course, matters undiscovered by the media generally remain undiscovered by the public too.

    Thank you for the flag info.
    Can you please tell me when y’all might be able to begin recycling in Plantation Woods?? I was certainly hoping for the first quarter of 2021 when we opted for your trash service back in January.
