American Flag Disposal
American flags that are worn, faded or damaged can be respectfully disposed of in a drop box located in front of the lobby entrance at CMSD’s headquarters at 290 Paularino Avenue, Costa Mesa, CA 92626. The flags are periodically collected and taken to the local fire department for retirement.
Note: Only full-sized American flags are accepted in the drop box. Please DO NOT place items embellished with American flag designs in the drop box, such as party decorations, clothing, houseware and miniature flags. These types of items can be donated to your local Thrift or Consignment Store, or disposed of with your regular trash in your Mixed Waste Cart.
