American flag disposal

Too often we, at the RRRSWA, see American flags come into the facility through the recycling stream.  Unfortunately the flags come in contact with dirty items and become soiled with such things as food, dirt, water and anything else that may be in there.  Thanks in part to the Renville County VSO, Renville County Sheriff, various organizations and citizens, we now have a flag disposal barrel located at the Recycling Facility in Redwood Falls.  Please click on the arrows to the left to see a picture of the barrel and also to see other organizations who will accept your flag for proper disposal (in case you are unable to come directly to the facility).  The RRRMRF is open Monday - Friday, 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM.

There are also Flag disposal locations throughout both counties.  Most city offices and/or government centers in Redwood and Renville County have drop off locations. Please call your county Veteran Service Office for more information.
