Stuff all of your filter material from your existing filter into the canister ;)
Personally, whenever I add large portions of smelly plastic, I use some activated carbon for a water change cycle. The plastic usually smells so bad, I can't imagine it doesn't leech a few chemicals from the manufacture process into the water. Have you ever drank from a newish plastic cup after sitting out all night? Terrible!!! Or better yet, water from a refrigerator with fresh plastic plumbing. UCK.
