We used one of these extensively at the company I used to work for,
printing telephone service invoices. It was a very reliable printer.

At any rate, Marilynn, our office manager, used to just dump the waste
toner out of the collector bucket. It never seemed to adversely affect
the printer, even though you're not supposed to do that.

I had two of these (the one from the office and another one I picked up
subsquently). I just got rid of one I believe as I have no more use for
it since I got my very nice Xerox XD125f. I still have the other one but
its fate is nearly decided.

If you weren't all the way over in Jolly Olde England I would send you the
one I still have for parts.
