Trash in my paint

I just painted the first coat on a bedside table using oil based semi gloss paint and it has gotten trash in the finish..Can this be sanded or what can I do?

Sand it then work in an area with no trash in it.

Once it's dry, sure, you can sand it.

Where is the "trash" coming from? If it is in the can, you need to strain the paint. If it is from dust or contamination in the air you need to work in a cleaner environment.
