Just remove the workers. If you notice more dying then move them into a different nest.

I personally have had rather bad experiences with yellow fungus. If the trash pile is in the outworld, I would change the outworld.

Tetramorium immigrans 

Tapinoma sessile

The fungus wouldn’t stay in the outworld without ants right?

If I were you I would switch the outworld for another one if possible and put on a mask and remove the fungus/trash pile. It would probably be a good idea to wash it somehow too.

Also not to mention your post titles are quite spammy and annoying, and you have made a lot of unnecessary topics. please learn how to properly post on a forum.

Let’s chill out, folks he’s asking a legitimate question here. Nothing spammy about that. Just put clear to understand titles. Avoid using all caps.

well for starters, you could not make huge titles with capital letters, look how everyone else makes titles. Too many posts in a short time is also a bad thing, as it clogs up the forum and drowns out important topics. Also, if a post doesn’t contribute much to the forum or is a bunch of similar posts in separate topics, it’s unnecessary. Asking about fungus is fine as that is actually dangerous for your ants, but a lot of other stuff is unnecessary. Don’t refrain from asking questions though, and if you have multiple similar questions or ID requests or stuff like that, put it in a single post.
