A New York sanitation worker is pledging the ultimate allegiance to the American flag, rescuing torn and tattered banners from the garbage heap.

Ed Shevlin, a sanitation worker from Rockaway Park, has been collecting flags that were thrown away so he can dispose of them in a more respectful manner, CBS New York reported.

Shevlin, 53, told the station he began rescuing the flags he found in the garbage – big and small ones – and folding them in preparation for disposal in a respectful ceremony where they will be burned.
