Rep. Lavielle: Retire Your Unserviceable American Flags in Norwalk

Posted on May 30, 2018 by rjoslyn


Following our Memorial Day observations this week and in anticipation of Flag Day, my Norwalk delegation colleagues and I are offering a way for Norwalk residents to dispose of their worn or unserviceable American flags in a dignified and respectful way.

The U.S. Flag Code specifies that American flags no longer fit for service must be properly disposed of, and we are offering this service free of charge, in conjunction with Riverside Cemetery in Norwalk.

There are three primary drop-off locations in Norwalk. The drive begins Tuesday, May 29 and will conclude on Thursday, June 14.

Residents may also drop flags off at the American Legion on 60 County St in Norwalk.  Flags can be dropped off in any condition throughout the year.

Please contact me if you have further questions on the flag drop-off, or any other inquiry related to state government. I can always be reached at or by calling 860-240-8700.
