Trash, recycling, and linen chutes must be designed, installed, and maintained to meet the 2019 NFPA 82 standard. This course addresses trash, recycling, and linen chutes and includes discussions on system components, accessory components, compactors and sorters, and meeting NFPA 82 requirements. The program also guides you through a typical installation of a chute system.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the various components that comprise a chute system and describe how trash, recycling, and linen chute systems differ;
  • Explain the NFPA 82 requirement for automatic sprinklers, and how flushing spray heads help eliminate fire hazards;
  • Discuss how electric, wave, and pneumatic doors, disinfecting and sanitizing units, and heat sensors are used to protect building occupants from fire, falling debris, and odor and bacteria exposure, and provide ease of operation; and
  • Describe the steps involved in the installation of a typical trash, recycling, or linen chute, and accessory components to ensure an NFPA 82-compliant system.
