This will be different depending on the model of your copier; however, the process is very similar for most Sharp models. The Toner Collection Container can be found behind your copier’s front cover. This is the same cover that you open to change your toner cartridges. On most new models, it is the large, black plastic component that takes up most of the space under this front cover. In some older models, it is a white plastic component.
Removing this container from your copier is simple and involves either pushing a button, sliding a lock, or pushing up a tab (on some older models).
Before removing the old container, make sure you have a new container to replace it with. Once you have unlocked it, pull it out of the copier. You should be very careful when doing this as this container is full of toner powder that can spill if not handled properly.
After you remove the container from your copier, place it in a plastic bag with the holes facing upward. If you still have the seals that came with the container, you should plug the holes with them before placing it in the bag. Tie the bag tightly so that toner can’t leak out of it.
You have two choices in disposing of your used container. You can either return it to Les Olson Company and we will recycle it for you, or you can throw it away. You can insert a new Toner Collection Container in basically the same way you took the old one out, only reversed. Some Toner Collection Containers have pull strips covering the holes that will need to be removed prior to installing.
