Bussard Collectors could actually be useful at warp speed?

So I was reading This article today, and it says that warp drive would essentially have to potential to sweep up all the interstellar radiation and particles it comes across and release it all in a big burst when it stops, creating a wave of catastrophe, essentially. That got me thinking; could the Bussard collectors work as a cosmic dustpan, cleaning up the radiation and particles from the warp field, and potentially using them to power the ship?
