The Belgrade Transfer Station is accepting faded and tattered American and state flags ready for retirement. Those flags will be turned over to the American Legion for a proper and respectful disposal. 

The Transfer Station is open from 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Wednesdays, 7 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturdays, and, from Memorial Day through mid-October, noon-5 p.m. Thursdays. Retired flags may be given to any of the facility's attendants. 

Flag Day this year is Sunday, June 14. Flag Day honors the history and meaning of the American flag. To celebrate Flag Day, Americans are encouraged to obtain a high-quality American flag and display it in a prominent location outside of their homes.
