Flag collection now through June 10

In anticipation of Flag Day, State Reps. Tony Hwang (R-134) and Dave Rutigliano (R-123) are helping residents dispose of their worn American flags in a dignified and respectful way.

The U.S. Flag Code specifies that old American flags no longer in service must be properly disposed, and the lawmakers are offering this service free of charge.

The drive will take place now through June 10, just shy of Flag Day on June 14.

Drop off locations include:

• Trumbull Town Hall, 5866 Main St.

• Fairchild Nichols Library Library, 1718 Huntington Tpk.

Flags will be accepted in any condition. For additional information please call 800-842-1423 or visit www.reprutigliano.com.
