We're finally finished, go out and show off your newly recycled ring. If you have any questions, feel free to comment.
Step 2: First Cut
Carefully insert the scissors near the top of the can, as shown in the second picture. Take care not to spill any leftover liquid inside. Then starting from the first cut, cut around the top of the can, until completely separated (Picture 3).
Be sure to clean up any shards that came off while cutting. (No fun stepping on those!)
