What colour of blue is it? You should have copper carbonate, which is a light blue.

I neutralized the solution using water and baking soda, and then i put a beer can in the mix as i heard aluminium will form crystals with the copper which would be way easier to dispose of then the liquid form. Long story short i've ended up with a bucket of blue water with what looks to be salt in the bottom. I assume the "salt" is the copper, now can i simply pour the blue water in the drain or is it still super poisonous?
