From staff reports

Beaufort County has installed a U.S. flag retirement box at the Beaufort County Public Works Annex, 23 Shelter Church Road. The flag retirement box is possible through a partnership with the National Association of Counties, the National Flag Foundation, and Beaufort County Council and is of no cost to the County.

Proper flag retirement etiquette requires American flags should be folded respectfully before being placed in the box. Members of Boy Scouts of America will be responsible for the disposal and burning of the worn flags.

Please contact Beaufort County Public Works at 843-255-2800 to make an appointment for access to the County Public Works Annex to drop off the flag.
