Gila County collecting damaged flags


When a flag is worn, tattered, ripped or soiled beyond repair, it should be retired and disposed of properly. Gila County maintains an official flag disposal box in the lobby of the County Courthouse in Globe, with another in Payson. 

The National Association of Counties (NACo) launched a 2017 effort for citizens to conveniently dispose of American flags using NACo flag disposal boxes, an effort that partnered  NACo with the National Flag Foundation and the National Sheriff’s Association. 

Participating counties coordinate with local groups such as the Boy Scouts, veterans’ organizations or the sheriff’s department to collect and dispose of the flags.
