Once upon a time, in some cities and towns, your regular trash went to the curb, but your compostable trash went into a covered receptacle in the ground. This was well before earth day and well before recycling was a thing. The food scraps might have been collected by a farmer to feed his animals. This galvanized can was what sat under the lid.
