Salmon Can trash can.

Salmon Trash Cans

Salmon fishing and canning were major industries in Anacortes' past, and this is remembered with public trash cans in the guise of salmon cans. Several of them are sited around the marina, I found six.

Too good to put my trash in; I saved it all for later!
