Usually if the mailbox is on Litigation Hold we increase the quota, what do we do if the user is not on Litigation Hold?

we are getting dumster quota warning,

I checked the database size where mailbox is sitting, got below:
RecoverableItemsQuota        : 100 GB (107,374,182,400 bytes)
RecoverableItemsWarningQuota : 90 GB (96,636,764,160 bytes)

I checked the mailbox itself, I got this :
RecoverableItemsQuota                  : 120 GB (128,849,018,880 bytes)
RecoverableItemsWarningQuota           : 110 GB (118,111,600,640 bytes)
CalendarLoggingQuota                   : 6 GB (6,442,450,944 bytes)

can I still increase the recoverable items quota for mailbox  ?

will it create any issues?
 
or how can I purge dumpster data?

can we see the data range of items in dumpster?

can you share any powershell command
