Madison County is making it easier to dispose of U.S. Flags in a respectful manner.

The public can now drop their worn, torn, faded or badly soiled flags in the official U.S. Flag Disposal Box at the Madison County Administration Building.

Disposed flags will be taken to the Madison County Veterans Assistance Commission, where they will then take them to be properly destroyed.

The disposal box is located on the first floor of the administration building. For more information about flag disposal. Contact the VAC at 618-296-4554.
