Rinse Filter between Changes?

I have a Penguin Mini filter with carbon in it for my 10 gal. I change it once a month.

Should I rinse it off when I do my 3 gal weekly water change?

Before I knew it was important to change it monthly I used to only rinse it monthly (and change it less often) and rinsing it does wash a lot of visible waste away.
