Thanks to Foamcaster, Bruce LeMaster, Drew Brown, Tan Chor Ann, Philip
Price and Mike for your response to my question about resin can disposal.
This is a great mailing list.

Philp's reply is already posted on the list and I will not re-post it
here. All other people suggested cutting the top part of the can open and
expose the inside of the can to sun light. After the remaining resin is
completely cured, dispose it the same way as other cured resin. Following
is the recommended way of cutting the can open by Mike from Adavntage

Thanks again.

Yes, we use a saber saw with a metal blade. A good hack saw will also
work. Handle the can carefully with gloves and such until it has been
cured. We do not worry about how the can looks when it is done. We cut the
top one inch off not just the lid.
