A woman contacted Eyewitness News, outraged after she found an American flag in the dump. The woman brought the story to light to prevent others from improperly disposing of American flags.

Flags that are considered unserviceable can be taken to the American Legion, veterans groups or the Boy Scouts. Those groups dispose of flags with honor.

People can also find out how to properly burn the flag at home.
