I'm new to composting, so hopefully this isn't a stupid question. Can I compost used water filters from my Keurig machine?

hi there! glad you\'re here To the SFG forum. look on the package does it tell you what the filters are made of? According to this website the pods are biodegradable and compostable.

Little carbon pellets; similar to an aquarium filter. These aren't the Keurig cups or pods, this is a filter that goes in the water tank to purify the water.

well,if it was me, I would toss them into the compost heap. If they don't rot, you can throw them away later. Wink
