Removing lead pipe from cast iron waste line

I have lead elbow leading from base of toilet (no flange) to the cast iron waste line. I need to know how to safely remove the lead elbow, so I can rebuild the waste line with a flange to properly mount the toilet.

Your help is urgently requested

Thanks

Re: Removing lead pipe from cast iron waste line

The lead is relatively soft, and you will be able to peel it out of the cast iron hub using a large screw driver, pry bar, etc. This will not create dust or fumes that you need to worry about.

Keep the kids from handling it.

Wear gloves.
