the top of the waste toner container must be cleaned 100% from the toner because it should be a light sensor that has to pass through it , if its spoiled with toner the light cannot pass through it ,so i recommend you to empty the waste toner container first and wash it with water and drying it well before using it again.
Wear breathing protection as there will be toner dust in the air.
Place flat in a work area and remove the 6 screws retaining the black box cover and carefully remove cover with box still flat on the work area. Be careful, the box is full of waste toner powder.
Dispose of the waste toner by tipping into waste container, being careful not to inhale the powder. Use a blower or vacuum to remove final traces of waste toner from the box and clean all surfaces with a clean cloth.
Place the box flat on the bench and inspect the clear sight-glass at the front. Inside will be a black flag which should be down on the bottom of the sight glass. If not, there is still waste toner in the front of the box which needs to be shaken or blown out.
Replace the cover and 6 screws and replace the waste toner box in the printer.
If error message still says replace waste toner box, then you need to check the sight glass again. The flag must be horizontal at the bottom of the glass or it is not completely empty.
No you should not empty this bottle. It is designed to keep the excess toner inside itself and should be disposed of properly.

Hope it helps!
The waste toner box is located on the right hand side of the printer. There is a door/cover that opens up on the right side. It is a milky white plastic container. Check to make sure it is there and installed properly and the door is fully closed. If all that is correct it my be full.
There should be a new waste toner container in the toner box (along with a toner). The toner and waste toner are normally replaced at the same time.
If you don't have a new waste toner container you can tray emptying the one that is in the printer BUT be very careful. The toner is a fine powder and can get all over if spilled. If you ever spill toner never use water or any otherliquid to try and clean it, that will just turn it to a liquid ink.Brush it off your cloths and vacuum it up.
If you do try and empty the container and the machine continues to tell you it needs to be replaced it can be because there is still toner on the inside of the toner container and the sensor is seeing it there.
Are you using a new waste toner container or did you empty the one that was already in the machine?
The machine uses a sensor that looks at the container to determine if it is full of waste toner. If there is toner on the inside sides of the container were it looks for toner it will indicate that it needs to be replaced even if you have emptied the toner out.
It is a good practice to replace the waste toner container with a new one, that is the way the machine is meant to be used.
If you have correctly installed a new waste toner container and the message hasn't cleared you may have a faulty sensor.
What model MFC Brother Printer do you have? The waste toner is left over toner from each print or copy that isn't used. It collects in a different spot in each printer. Usually the waste toner container is with the regular toner cartridge. The printer is able to detect when the waste toner is full by a light sensor in or near that container. Sometimes excess toner collects on the sensor itself and causes it to think the waste toner is full when it actually isn't. Try finding the waste toner container and empty it or replace it. clean the sensor that is on or near the container. it is likely a small black plastic piece that has 2 or 3 small wires coming from it. The model of printer will help to identify where the container is.
The life of the waste toner container unit is approximately 1,250 pages for full color 5% image printing or 5,000 pages for black printing. When the life span of the waste toner container has expired, Replace/Install Waste Toner Tank appears on the display of the control panel, indicating the waste toner container needs to be replaced. Otherwise your printer stops printing.
To replace the waste toner container:
1 Turn the machine off, then wait a few minutes for the machine to cool.
2 Open the front cover.
3 Pull the waste toner container out of the machine using its handle.
--- above from manual, following is my paraphrasing due to lack of pictures --- 4. remove the container cap from the back side and cap the opening
5. take the new waste container out of its package
6. install the new waste toner container.
___________ You may wish to TRY EMPTYING the waste toner, but you will find toner is the messiest and possibly dangerous (inhallation, etc) stuff you've worked with. it is an extremely find powder and can cause an awful mess and is best disposed of by capping and replacing the container with a new one (shop around to find them).
DO NOT attempt to vacuum up toner - just my personal opinion - I suspect many vacuums may not have fine enough "bags" to capture this intentionally very fine dust. BUT Toner vacuums do exist and some "may" work.
Your machine catch's excess toner and puts it in a container and needs you to replace/empty it soon or it will have to stop work, sorta like needs just a dash of attention for all its effort.
The bottle at a guess for this model will be apparent when opening front door, instruction are probally on the inside of door but it is just a container full of black messy stuff that needs to be emptyied and replaced....hang on I'll google it....looks like you need to buy a new box and that will have instructions even.
