I have the Wynn Environmental cartridge, as well.

At the end of every project, I dismantle the DC (this takes 15 minutes, at most); then use a small compressed air blower to blow-out the dust particles. This is a messy, but very effective solution.

Some manufacturers do provide means of cleaning filters – either manually (typically an exterior handle which moves an internal brush array; or electronically, where the internal brushes can be activated by a switch).

Clear Vue cyclones get high marks, though my understanding is they require an assembly process. The rights to Clear Vue was acquired some years ago from the original manufacturer.
