    id love to send them my cans to use and shit, but that'd be 50 dollars later in shipping fees, when i can just recycle them down the street.
    seems like a cool idea, but its not getting much hype.

    this wont help your current situation but when im done with a can i just wipe my prints off and toss it. but you could just have some fun crushing them with a sludge hammer and throw them out.

    Man, I just toss mine into the plastic bag i bring with me and stash it in a random ass spot or garbage can. Or let trains run them over, that's fun.

    even if they cant prove i did any graf or anything at a depot place i still dont wanna take the chance. dumpsters seem like nice places to get ride of your cans...

    yeah i know people that have been caught through prints too...its not rocket science fingerprint testing is getting cheaper and cheaper if they find your prints on the outside of the can and can match the paint on the inside of the can to tags that's enough for at least a search warrant whether you do arty legal stuff aswell or not...

    I saw one piece where he painted his old cans black and made a hill on the side of the wall to fit the piece cause it was like a mural. It was pretty dope cause it was 3d and shit. Recycle on your own, be creative!

    uhh, if you're a half serious bomber, yer gonna have more than you can handle with spray cans. Boss, I just huck em in a dumpster. That garbage truck's not gonna know a difference. been doing that for years; i've tossed hundreds of cans, and i've never had a garbage man bring em back ;)
