Have a tattered flag? Drop-off available in town

In anticipation of Flag Day, State Reps. David Rutigliano, Laura Devlin and Ben McGorty, in cooperation with the Trumbull Memorial VFW Post #10059, are encouraging Trumbull residents to 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, in conjunction with VFW Post #308.

The Trumbull state legislative delegation will have two separate drop-off locations. The drive will take place May 30 through June 12, just a little shy of Flag Day on June 14.

Drop off locations are: Trumbull Town Library, 33 Quality Street and Fairchild-Nichols Memorial Library 1718 Huntington Turnpike, Trumbull

Residents may also drop flags off at the VFW Post #10059 Trumbull.
