McDonald McGarry Insurance collecting flags for recycling

Jun 26, 2019

If your flag is looking a little worse for wear and you are unsure of how to respectfully dispose of it, consider the annual McDonald McGarry flag recycling event, where worn and faded flags will be collected.

The flags will 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 the good old stars and stripes through July 12 at its office at 630 Main St., Edmonds.

Flags must be removed from any poles or attachments and be completely dry. While this recycle program is free, McDonald McGarry will accept donations to Edmonds Food Bank.

McDonald McGarry Insurance is collecting flags 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays and from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Fridays.
