Burning the flag is the ONLY ACCEPTABLE FORM OF DISPOSAL! How the HELL can you make that illegal?!
The rules say it plainly! If the flag touches the ground? Burn it. If it gets torn/otherwise damaged? Burn it. If it gets stained? Burn it! Burn it! Burn it! Burn it!
It is defiling the flag to throw it in with your regular trash, so it is shown respect by the burning!
How the flying, fanciful FUCK can you make proper disposal illegal? What are we supposed to do, invent some sort of molecular destruction method?!
