If your flag is looking a little worse for wear and you are unsure of how to respectfully dispose of it, you won’t want to miss the annual McDonald McGarry Flag Recycling. Once again this year, the downtown Edmonds insurance company is collecting worn and faded flags.
The flags will then be passed on to local scout troops for flag retirement ceremonies. This retires the flags respectfully, while the scouts have an opportunity to learn about proper flag handling.
McDonald McGarry will be collecting flags now through July 12 at their office at 630 Main St. Note the flags must be removed from any poles or attachments and completely dry. While this recycle program is totally without cost to you, as always McDonald McGarry will be accepting your donations to Edmonds Food Bank.
McDonald McGarry will be open — and collecting flags — from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays and from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Fridays. Call the office at 425-774-3200, or email [email protected] for more information.
