Starting in Elementary School, Americans are taught the history of the American flag and how important it is to show it the proper respect. We do this by facing the flag and covering our heart during the Pledge of Allegiance or National Anthem, keeping the flag off the ground, and never simply throwing it away.
The first two are relatively easy to follow, but if you can’t toss your old, tattered flag, how do you dispose of it? It’s much more effortless than you think and there’s no better time to talk about it than on National Flag Day.

Fashion design students at Colgan High School in Northern Virginia were excited to compete in the Off the Wall Art Competition presented by The Center for the Arts of Greater Manassas and Prince William County in January. They were set to present in the Wearable Art category and spent weeks creating detailed pieces using recycled paper, textiles, cardboard, and other recyclables.
The day before the competition, however, disaster stuck. A snowstorm caused their school to close. With a locked school and no way to gather their artwork, the students were unable to attend the competition they had worked so hard for.

In the past 5 years, the quality of Recycling has been
reduced tremendously due to contamination.
- You may think we all recycle, but we are doing it wrong. -
Recycling carts, bins, and dumpsters
get filled with non-recyclable items
every day. This happens not only with
our customers, but it’s happening
nationwide. When recycling gets
contaminated, it can’t be used to
make new products.
