Trumbull Legislators Sponsor Retired Flag Collection

TRUMBULL- With the summer season upon us and patriotic holidays such as Memorial Day, Flag Day and the Fourth of July on the horizon, it is the perfect time to properly retire your worn, faded and tattered American flags as you prepare to put on fresh new displays of the Stars and Stripes.

Trumbull legislators, Rep. David Rutigliano, Rep. Laura Devlin and Rep. Ben McGorty, in conjunction with the Trumbull Memorial VFW Post #10059 are providing three locations that residents can drop off their worn American flags for proper ceremonial disposal according to the U.S. Flag Code.  Drop-off locations will receive flags from May 16th – June 13th.

The drop-off locations are:

  • Trumbull Town Library, 33 Quality Street, Trumbull
  • Trumbull Town Hall, 5866 Main Street, Trumbull
  • Fairchild-Nichols Memorial Library 1718 Huntington Turnpike, Trumbull
