Not a headline I ever thought I would write, but here we are.

As I was walking around the Benton County Fair, I noticed that among all the cool things to see and do, even the place you put your trash is interesting.

4-H groups decorate garbage cans and enter them for judging every year. This year's champion garbage can project was created by the Cornerstone Clovers and the theme was "Give a Hoot - Don't Pollute". It featured little hand painted owls!

Take a look at some other fancy garbage cans around the grounds from 2019, and years past, and if you have a favorite, snap a pic and send it to us on the 98.1 mobile app and we will add it to the gallery!
