Dear Veteran Organization,

As part of our commitment and gratitude to those who served our country in defense of our flag, Covanta, owner and operator of the Hempstead Resource Recovery Facility is proud to invite you to a Flag Day Ceremony on June 14, 2018 at 1:00 p.m. at our facility.

For the past several years, we have been working with veteran groups on developing a program for the respectful retirement and disposal of serviceable American flags. We are proud to announce an expansion of this program that will make it easier for groups to drop-off retired and serviceable flags for disposal year around in our new collection bin. Details for dropping off the flags are attached to this letter.
