Don't touch the garbage!

Quote from the Steamboat Rock State Park brochure:
"The piles of rusted cans date back to the construction of the Grand Coulee Dam and are considered historical and should be left untouched."
We had noticed a few rusted cans along the side of the hiking trail, but didn't think too much about it until I read the above quote. Then I had to wonder: How long does garbage have to clutter up the landscape before it's considered historical and not be touched?

(The Grand Coulee Dam was constructed in the 1930s.)
