Puncture spray cans

The local scrapyard wouldn’t accept empty aerosol containers unless there was a hole in the can. So I glued a PVC cap to one end of a pipe and a cleanout plug on the other. I drilled the cleanout cap to make a ramrod out of metal pipe with a sharpened air chuck to create a spear. I drop the aerosol can in nozzle-end down, screw the cleanout cap on, and drop the ramrod to spear the can. The PVC contains any remnants of paint or other substance.
