WARNING: Binder is flammable, as is the waste binder that collects in the bottom of the printer. It cannot be disposed of in regular trash or into sinks or drains. It must be kept in a flammable waste container that is emptied on a regular basis in conjunction with your flammable-waste service.

 

  1. If performing this task with other daily maintenance, go to settings-cog.jpg > Maintenance > Daily Cleaning. Remove the Waste Bottle from the printer.

  1. ONCE PER DAY: Rinse the waste bottle in your sink, mixing the waste binder with plenty of water before pouring down the drain. Fill and empty the bottle multiple times with water to ensure that all areas are properly cleaned. Rinse the funnel and screw-top, as well.
  2. If sanitizing, rinse all components with your sanitizing solution.
