When you die, what do you want your legacy to be? Well, the "Beer Can Man" bequeathed his immense collection of (what else?) beer cans to the rest of world. Sean Tubridy wrote:
So the deal is these belonged to a guy known as "The Beer Can Man". He had a place in our building and collected these along with bar signs and all sorts of other stuff. He died a while back and these are being hauled away. They can't be recycled for the deposit because they are tin and steel.
By the end there were 12 trailer-size dumpsters of cans!
