How do I cap off an exhaust pipe that is no longer connected?


I have an approx. 2" exhaust pipe that is extends over my roof that is no longer hooked up. We remodeled the bathroom and put in a new exhaust pipe. How do I close off the old exhaust pipe so that rain, etc. does not enter it? Thanks for any advice. The pipe is made of PVC.

You could glue a cap on it, if you are sure nothing else uses it. Is this an exhaust pipe from a fan, or a plumbing vent?
