Great job guys, love the show. That said, I am seriously disappointed that you didn't answer my question in your most recent episode(#25)-- you had the perfect opportunity when you started talking about dust collectors! Below you will find my original question, am I the only woodworker in the world with this problem???

What is the best way to empty my 2-stage dust collector? When I dump my collection drum into the city compost bin, it makes an unbelievable mess. I wear a respirator and ski goggles which helps, but I'm always covered head to toe with dust after the dump. My driveway fares even worse. I try to enlist friends or even my wife to help, but for some reason no one is too interested once I hand them coveralls, a respirator and ski goggles! My cyclone works nicely with the supplied 55 gallon drum and I don't want to dedicate my compost bin to the dust collector by building an integrated system. Is there a better way to dump the dang thing?
