    Get a black bin liner and do it inside of that.

    Funnily enough, I do both of those. Belt and braces approach and all that, if anything "escapes" from the binliner.

    Can I ask why empty? Don't you just use a new one? Our biggest problem is what to do with them. Recycle companies won't take them and I don't think they should just be dumped as general waste.

    If they're anything like ours, the new empty ones don't work - the printer rejects them. I have no idea how you manage to mess up the manufacturing of what is basically an empty plastic box, but there you go...

    This morning I stood in a bathtub and emptied out three waste bottles by hand into a black bin liner. I suggest plugging every orifice you can. I just sneezed gray.

    I started off using a black plastic bag then decided to use re-sealable food bags - seal the bag around the bottle and left as little as possible inside the bag.

    Could then see exactly whats coming out and hopefully keep the bottle itself as clean as possible

    Since then we've gotten rid of the printers that used them too often and just have the leased MFP that uses them like water(known fault...) - they send out free replacements so we don't bother emptying them anymore

    That's why we don't use a new one.
