The "waste basket" is to indicate that the waste toner area in the drum cartridge is full. If the copy quality is still ok you may be able to empty the waste by removing the drum cartridge from the machine and removing the opaque piece from the left side and dumping it out. BE CAREFUL this can be very very messy. toner is a very fine powder and will get all over the place if caution is not used.

When the printer is not being used, the print-heads slide to their "resting" position,
in order to keep the ink-jets moist, i.e., to NOT dry-out.
Some ink is absorbed into that INK-ABSORBER.
Now, after a few years of usage, that ink-absorber is "full".
Like taking-out the garbage from your kitchen waste-basket when it gets full, and replacing the full waste-basket with an empty waste-basket, it's time to get your printer serviced -- replace the "full" ink-absorber with an "empty" ink-absorber.
Note that CANON printers do not actually "measure" the fullness -- they electronically estimate the fullness, given information about how much you print, and how often you print, and the "density" of the pages that you do print (text is much less dense than colour-photos).
Lets start with a reference,which will be standing in front of the copier. Ok,using this reference the waste toner bottle is located on the left side of the copier at the the lowest point of the left side almost at the back of the copier. If you have a stapler/finsher you will need to un-dock it from the copier and slide it away as far as possible, It need not be removed. Now you will have located a cover with one screw. Remove the screw and remove the cover.You now see the bottle.It has a handle so slide it out being careful not to spill it. You can of course pour the waste toner into a strong plastic bag,taking whatever cautions you see fit as you have one hell of a potential mess if not handled carefully.Once the bottle is empty, please notice the neck of the bottle. The way the copier "knows" the bottle is full is by sending a beem of infrared light thru the neck of the bottle. When the waste toner fills the bottle to the neck and blocks the beam of light the copier knows the bottle is full. My point is make sure you clean the neck of the waste toner bottle (if you look closely you will see the "windows" the light travels thru) by using a Q Tip or tissue. If the "windows" are clouded the copier will think the bottle is still full even though the bottle is empty. Does that make sense? In other words you could put a brand new waste toner bottle in the copier with black tape around the neck of the bottle and the copier would say the bottle is full.So now that its empty, and the neck is clean, replace the bottle and the cover.Turn off the "main power switch" located on the right side towards the rear of the copier.Wait a sec, turn it back on and you should be in good shape.Take care and let "FIXYA " know if I helped please.

I believe there is a connector in the front of the bottle. Turn the copier Off and plug it back in. If there is not, then there is a waste toner holder in the transfer belt unit. It dose not fill up offten, it took me a while to find it the first time.... Good Luck
on the cf2001 the waste bottle is located on the left side door but to empty is going to be difficult and messy, there is an auger that you after turn while you angle the opening of the bottle toward a garbage container to empty it, the bottle is really a rectangular container with a notch in the top middle portion that needs to be clear of toner because a optical sensor sees through it, or else it will still give you the message empty waste bottle, it is easier to have an extra empty waste bottle to replace it.... hope this helps
COFFEE PREPARATION PROCEDURES
1) Place filter into brew basket.
2) Put the proper amount of coffee into the filter.
3) Slide the brew basket into holder.
4) Place empty decanter on warmer located directly under the brew basket and turn corresponding warmer switch ON.
5) Pour decanter of fresh water through pour-in opening at top of brewer.
6) Hot water will be delivered through the sprayhead. This distributes the hot water evenly over the coffee bed within the brew basket. The coffee will drain from brew basket into the container below.
7) Red light indicates warmer is ON.
8) Before brewing next pot, remove brew basket from brew rails and dump filter into waste basket.
You need to replace the waste toner bottle (packaged with a new toner cartridge) you can't just empty it. There is a photo sensor that "reads" through a window of the waste bottle. The sensor could be dirty. Clean the slits with a q-tip.
The waste toner is usually a bottle near the toner cartridge which collects excess toner powder from the cartridge. It is usually present in more heavy duty laser printers, not all printers have them as a replaceable supply. You would need to refer to your manual for replacement instructions, they vary from printer model. For this machine, the Waste Toner supply number is #420131.
In the case of the first poster, my best guess would be there was spillage of toner on the sensors to detect the waste basket overflowing, hence why the error message is constant. This would require cleaning of the sensors, a relatively simple task but for proper access, the machine would need to be partially disassembles for thorough cleaning. It would be best done at a repair centre.
