What to do with used compact filter cartridge?


I just got a replacement compact filter cartridge and was wondering what would be the best way to dispose of (or ideally recycle) the old one? Thanks!

Put it in the garbage, as stated in the manual. It’s not recyclable.

You could drill out the rivets, take it apart and see if you can get some stock activated charcoal and pleated filtering media for less than $250 :wink:


Thanks for the quick response @ eflyguy you are correct. Feel free to dispose of the used cartridge in the garbage. I’ll be closing this thread out. If you have any additional questions please email support@glowforge.com or open a new thread.
