No Recycling Options for Refrigerator Water Filters

I just replaced my water filter (DA29-00020B) on my Samsung refrigerator and was extremely disappointed in finding out that your filters are not recyclable. Under the "Caring for the Environment " section of your website your faq answer is "Refrigerator filters are designed with no harmful components and can be disposed with regular waste." That is very poor on your part. Your products should be designed to be sustainable from production to disposal. If this means your filters are more expensive, so be it. Water dispensers are luxury items and a likely additional 10 to 15% cost for your filters to account for recycling would not impact significantly your refrigerator sales while making you a better corporate citizen. You can do better.
