Sounds like you're being a responsible citizen. And making it easier for
responsible adults to "put litter in its place". This is the kind of thing
that members of my family would do. Good on you!
I'll read a couple more posts, and see if you've made holes. Guess not. When
you get your holes, please consider using some perforated strap, to go
around the trash can. Make a big loop, so the trash can will nestle in. That
way you can lift the trash can out, not have the trashcan permanantly bolted
Or, use carriage head bolts, and wingnuts. Carriage heads on the inside, so
they don't rip the trash bag. Bolts and wing nuts on the outside of the
rail. Bit of grease to keep the bolts from rusting. You may end up replacing
the trash can as it weather cracks from UV rays.

It's in a spot where people park and leave stuff on the ground. We call
it lovers leap. There's a cliff on the other side, hence the guardrail.
Even with the trash can, some people STILL litter the scenic area. Sigh.
But the trash can is blowing down in the wind, creating FURTHER litter
from the people who DID put trash in it ... so I want to be responsible
and bolt it down.
I guess a person 'could' drive a car into it ... but ... really ... do
you think a plastic trash can on the end of a guard rail is really going
to do that much damage to an incoming vehicle?
Note: The only way a vehicle can hit it, logically, is perpendicular to
it as there's no road on the bent end where the trash can is (and the
guard rail would be pointing toward were it an arrow).
