What application are you using to print? On what OS? –  Joril Dec 7 '10 at 12:44
    
What printer? how is it connected? is it supported by your application? How specifically does it "waste" the paper? –  Chris S Dec 7 '10 at 13:36

1 Answer 1

Most printers have a hardware setting to eject the page and some will further have an eject and return to top setting. Basically advances the page for removal and then returns to the top of form. In addition, the application may send a form feed at the start of the document.

More info, as noted in the comment, would help. Make model of printer and connection method (LPT/COM, etc) may also assist.
