    please help

    Is this sentence grammatically correct?

    There are a couple flags here that I need to dispose.

    I didn't think you should end a sentence with a proposition.

    'Of' is not used as a preposition there.
    'To dispose of' means to get rid of/discard.
    You don't say you 'dispose something', but ' dispose of something.'
