Refuse separation and disposal
Dust is often created when separating waste, recycling or undertaking any other activity involving waste or refuse. If you are unsure what may be contained in the waste, wear a respirator in protection class FFP3 to protect against hazardous particles. A protection class FFP2 respirator will suffice for regular domestic waste and harmless substances. A respirator with carbon can be used to counteract any unpleasant odours (protection against gases and vapours under occupational exposure limits [OEL]). You can find product suggestions for this purpose below. Please ensure all appropriate and requisite personal protective equipment (PPE) is worn, as offered by uvex.
