Mecosta Co. Sheriff’s Office Installs Flag Retirement Box

New flag disposal box installed at 225 S. Stewart St. Big Rapids, MI

The Mecosta County Sheriff’s Office announced on Friday they have installed a flag retirement box – at no cost to the county.

The box is located at the sheriff’s office, 225 S. Stewart St. in Big Rapids.

The sheriff’s office says the flags should be folded respectfully before being place in the box.

Members of AMVETS Post 1941 will be responsible for the proper disposal of the worn flags.

“This centrally-located drop-off provides convenience while respecting our national symbol,” said Sheriff Brian Miller. “The county is unified in helping enable our citizens to respect our great nation while disposing of old or worn out flags.”
