There's a good chance that Aspen-Pitkin Airport in Colorado has some of the most unique trash cans in the world.

Given the state's pro-marijuana legislation, there are a lot of people traveling within state borders with pot in their pockets (or in their bags).

You could easily forget to dispose of it before heading to the airport for a flight to a less pot-friendly destination, so the airport has introduced pot-specific waste cans for travelers getting rid of their party (um, vacation) favors.

Reddit user THE-SEER spotted one of these trash cans (pictured above) on a recent trip through Colorado. Our favorite comment: “Any janitor openings at this place?”
