Following our Memorial Day observations and in anticipation of Flag Day, my office is offering a way for Norwalk and Darien 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 VFW Post #6933 in Darien and Riverside Cemetery in Norwalk.

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

Drop-off locations in Darien:

  • Darien Library, 1441 Post Rd.
  • VFW 6933, 205 Noroton Ave
  • Darien Town Hall, 2 Renshaw Rd.

Drop-off locations in Norwalk:

  • Norwalk City Hall, 125 East Ave, Norwalk
  • Norwalk Main Library, 1 Belden Ave, Norwalk
  • South Norwalk Library, 10 Washington St, Norwalk

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 Terrie.Wood@cga.ct.gov or by calling 860-240-8700.
