Question about Lexmark Office Equipment & Supplies

I use a Lexmark color laser printer. Used toner accumulates in the waste toner bottle. Can I throw the toner away in the trash and reuse the bottle, or am I supposed to throw the used toner and bottle away together? Is used toner hazardous waste?

The excess toner can just be discarded, and it will not be hazardous to the environment. Toner is simply a dyed carbon powder. I would recommend rinsing it down the drain or disposing it into a plastic bag to prevent a big mess. Toner is very difficult to clean up if you spill it, so clean carefully.

Ricoh aficio Aficio 3224C used toner bottle -1 is full


On a 3224, the used toner bottle is easily replaceable. To get to it, open the front cover of the copier. In the lower left corner, you will see a white or light gray plastic container which slides straight out -- that is the used toner bottle. You can replace it (if you have a new one) by taking the old one out, putting the black plug in the hole to prevent toner from spilling, throwing it away, and inserting the new bottle. If you don't have a new used toner bottle, you can empty this one out into a large bag or trash can and then reinstall it.

Waste toner gets full before toner runs out


Actually, the waste toner should get full sometime before the regular toner runs out in laser printers that have several toner cartridges compared to the single waste toner reservoir.

You can dump the toner reservoir out and avoid buying the empty waste toner 'reservoir.'

I did this on my Brother Laser printer and saved about $30 or so for an empty plastic waste toner bottle or jar.

If this is the way the Kyocera-4020DN is, then I would put the waste toner, which is just that, waste, and put it into a plastic zip loc storage bag and throw it away. Don't breath the toner.

Good luck on this repair.

Replace wt pack


The waste toner bottle is nearly full and will need to be replaced. The printer will be able to print approximately 50 more pages and then will no longer print until the waste toner bottle is replaced.

BW print OK Color print has 'smudge' as well as print.


Sounds like you have color toner contamination in the print engine, It could be the toner cartridges spilling toner, or cleaning modules, take them out carefully and clean them, it also could be the waste toner bottle needs emptying. Take care not to inhale toner particles.

Can you throw away in regular waste trash the full toner waste bottle?


Yes. You might want to put in inside a plastic garbage bag. The toner is mainly plastic.

Toner bottle full


Looking at the printer from the rear, you will see a door the right side of the printer in the bottom corner. Open this and the waste toner bottle sits behind it.

Panasonic DP-1810P Laser Copier


The copier has an "eye" that detects when the waste toner bottle is full. If you dump it and reuse it, the residue can build up and cause the machine to "think" the bottle is still full. I experienced the same problem. If you re-use an old bottle, after emptying, rinse our any remaining residue and dry the bottle out. Your copier should then notice the bottle being empty.
