I would recommend just talking to them. They may not know what the proper procedure is for retiring old flags and may not want to just throw them out.
Our local boy scout troop maintains a drop box at the civic center. They give the flags a proper send off. Ask around.
You could always have one just sent to them as a gift. Done that a couple of times myself.
