Flag Disposal Box
with the National Association of Counties, the National Flag Foundation
and the National Sheriff's Association, Dubois County has installed a
flag retirement box, at no cost to the county, at the Dubois County
Courthouse near the main entrance. Flags should be folded
respectfully before being placed in the box.
The United States Flag Code prescribes flag etiguette - everthing from
flying it near other flags to instructions on how to raise and lower
it. "The flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer
a fitting emblem of display, should be destroyed in a dignified way,
preferably by burning," says the code.
Members of the Boy Scouts, American Legion, or VFW will be
responsible for the proper disposal of the worn flags.
"This centrally-located drop-off provides a
convenient location for Dubois County Citizens to respectfully dispose
of old or worn out flags" said Dubois County Treasurer Kitty
Merkley. The drop-off box will be available during normal
courthouse business hours: Monday through Friday from 8:00 - 4:00,
Said NACo Executive Director
Matthew Chase, "We are pleased to be able to partner in the provision
of these flag retirement boxes. Proper disposal of the U.S. flag
goes hand in hand with the commitment we make to public service while
simultaneously benefiting our residents."
