Charcoal filters are a critical component of the Mill kitchen bin’s odor management system. We selected a coconut-based charcoal among other varieties for its long-lasting ability to reduce odors and natural material profile.
The life span of the filter is typically 6-months and can vary based on how often you add kitchen scraps to your bin and how smelly they are.
We automatically send replacements (included in your membership at no extra cost) before you start noticing any smells.
After replacing the filter, ship back your old filter to us. We prioritized the use of a refillable canister to minimize plastic waste and to have the opportunity to recycle the charcoal material.
