Residual toner removed from the photoreceptor of a repro~ duction machine with a brush~-vacuumsystem is deposited in a reclaim bottle, The bottle has two openings~ one filtered and one unfiltered. During operation of the machine, toner enters the bottle through the unfiltered opening1 the filtered opening being closed during this time, When the bottle is fulls it is disconnected from the remainder of the brush~vacuum system1 the unfiltered opening is closed, and the filtered opening is opened so that the reclaimed toner can be poured through the latter opening back into a developer.
