' SANITARY eARBaeE-nEcErvnR.
To all whom, itrmay concern:
Be it known that I, A THONY E. LAnG, a
citizen of the United States,residing at Buffalo, county of Erie,and State of New, York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Sanitary Garbage -'Receivers; and I do hereby declare the follow ing to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such aswill enable others skilled in the art to which it ap'pertams to make and use the same;
This invention relates to receivers for garbage and the'like, and aims to provide such a receiverof the sanitary type having the novel features of construction hereinafter set forth.
In its preferred form, the improved garbage receptacle or receiver comprises ,an outer casing designed to receive an inner receptacle of paper or like destroyable material, the construction of' the casing being such that the inner paper receptacle maybe easily removed and replaced. This is preferably accomplished by providinglahinged section or door on the casing which, when opened, permits'the paper receptacle and its contents to be withdrawn from the casing laterally, thereby obviating the necessity of lifting the receptacle and its contents from the casing, which action would be likely to result in tearing the receptacle.
The invention further consists in'associating deodorizing anddisinfecting means with thercasing andproviding avalved or closureequipped hopper to direct the garbage or other refuse into the inner paper receptacle.
' The invention contemplates certain other may be obtained; Fig. 3 is avertical section taken through the center of the. complete receiver showing theinner paper receptacle in positionwithin the casing; Fig. 4: is an under side view of the removable top of the casing; Fig. 5 is a detail horizontal sectional iew a n gh 9x 9 ott g miei e deodorant containers; andFig. 6 is a perspectlve vlew of a carrylng device which maybe employed to'c'arry the paper recep tacle and'its contents when the same is removed from the casing, being devlce. I 7
Referring particularly to Fig, 1, the outer casing is denoted generally by the reference character 1, preferably of metal, and comprises a suitable base structure 2, to which a body portion 3 may be secured, such as by means of rivets, bolts or the like 4., The body portion 3 is preferably made cylindrical in shape and may be conveniently made of sheet metal. It is longitudinally divided i v v the paper receptacle SllQWIIlD. the figure in the carrying Specification of Letters Patent. P tentedOct. 19, 1915. Application filed January 9, 19 1}; 1 SeriaLNo. 1,273.
into two sections, as clearly shown in'Fig. 1, one section beinghingedly associated with the other. In the present instance, thesectlon 5'1 s hingedly' connected with the other section by means of suitable hinges 6.- In a this way, the section 5 constitutes aswinging door, which, when opened, permits free access to the interior of the casing.
The meeting. edges of thetwo sections are preferably constructed as shown in Fig. 2,
c to produce a tightclosureand a firmrinterlock between the meetingedges, when the "door is. closed This is accomplished by bending'the sheet metal at the edge of the stationary se'ction'back upon itself several timesto provide a vertical recess 7 to receive acorr'esponding edge portion ofthe door 5. 1 The sheet metalat theedge of the door is also-preferably bent'back uponitself several times to provide a projecting strip 8, the folds in the metal at the edge ofboth sections being so related-that" as:the door is closed, theflstrip of metal 8 provided on the door will beforced'into the spec e9 between theseveralfolds of the-metal, as
clearly. shown in 2.. The size of the space 7 is such that the stripJS will fit tightly therein, and when said strip isforced into the'recess, it. will be retained, therein, thus resulting in an interlock between the parts and an efiicient' closure.
Thecasing is designed to receive an inner destroya'ble receptacle 9 (Figs. 3 and 6), which is preferably made of stiff paper;
The paper .receptacle9 provided with a sitioned within the casing, the closure 10 is'bent back to lie outside of the, receptacle between the wall of the same and the wall of the casing 1, as clearly shown in Fig. 3. The receptacle 9 is readily positioned by first opening the door 5 of the casing, and then slipping the receptacle laterally 'into place. of the casing positioned.
The top or cover, in its preferred form, is provided with a peripheral flange 11 which slips over the upper peripheral edge of the casing 1, and thereby holds the door 5 in its closed position. The top is provided with a hopper 12, the opening at the base of which is normally closed by a gate or closure 13. This closure is pivotally mounted in the top at 14 by rigidly connecting the gate 13 to a bolt or the like 15, which passes through the top and is provided at its upper end with a knob or thumb-nut 16,
whereby the gate 13 may be swung in a horizontal plane about the aXis of the bolt 15 to open or close the hopper. The free end of the gate 13 is preferably supported and guided in a depending guide 17 secured to the under side of the top. This guide has an opening 18 to receive a projecting guiding portion 19 of the closure 13. By this structure, it is obvious that when the paper receptacle is in its proper position within the casing, the garbage or other IefllSGIHELY be deposited in the paper receptacle by first opening the gate or closure 13 of the hopper, and then dumping the refuse into the hopper. V
The casing preferably has associated therewith, suitable means for containing a germicide and deodorant. In the present instance, two perforated arcuate and cylindrical containers are removably secured to the under side of the top. These containers are shown at 20 in Figs. 3 and 4t, and are removably held in place by means of the screws 21, the headed portions of which lie inside of the containers 20, and the threaded portions of which extend throughthe top to receive suitable thumb-nuts 22. One of these fastening devices 21, 22 is preferably placed at each end of each container 20. Similar arcuate containers 23 are associated with the casing near the base, one of the same being secured to the stationary section of the casing, and the other to the swinging door. The lower casings 23 are secured to the sheet metal side wall of the casing by fastening devices similar to those described above and shown at 21, 22. All of these arcuate containers are provided with removable end caps 24, which when removed, permit a suitable deodorant or germicide to be placed in the containers.- Preferably, the two arcuate containers 20 associated with the top are filled with germicide, and the two similar containers in the lower part of the casing are filled with a deodorant. For
ventilating purposes, the casing is preferably per'forated as shown at 25, the perfora- The door is then closed and the top tions being elongated, as clearly shown in Fig. 1. The receiver isthus made so sanitary in its nature that the receiver may be placed inside of a'house without being objectionable in any way.
vVhen the paper receptacle 9 has been filled, the top of the casing is removed and the door 5 is opened, thereby permitting the paper receptacle 9 and its contents to be freely moved from the casing in a lateral direction. As the door 5 permits free access to the interior of the casing, the paper receptacle 9 may be slid laterally from its position within the casing, thereby obviating the necessity of lifting the receptacle vertically, which would probably result in tearing the receptacle, due to the weight of its contents. When the full receptacle is thus removed, its closure 10 is swung to its closed position, and the paper receptacle may then be carried to its place of disposal by any appropriate carrying device, such as that illustrated in Fig. 6. Such a carrier may comprise a plurality of rings 26 composed of metal, or any other suitable material, and a supporting base 27, the base and rings being interconnected by means of chains 28. A chain 29 may be connected to the uppermost ring 26 and serve as a handle. This construction renders the carrying device collapsible, and when the parts are in their normal carrying position, they provide a satisfactory and efficient carrying means for the receptacle 9, as clearly shown in Fig. 6.
The paper receptacles 9 may be destroyed, as they can be cheaply made. Their specific construction is immaterial to the present invention, but preferably they are stamped from a sheet of stiff paper and made cylindrical in shape to conform with the interior space of the casing. Although the receptacle 9 has beenreferred to as a paper receptacle, and although this is the preferred material of which the receptacle is made, I do not wish to limit myself to this material, as any cheap destroyable receptacle may be used, which necessitates lateral withdrawing of the receptacle out of the casing. Furthermore, I do not wish to limit myself to the details of construction illustrated and described, as various modifications may be made without departing from the spirit or scope of the invention, as defined in the accompanying claims.
What I claim is 1. A receiver for garbage and the like comprising an outercasing, an inner selfsupporting paper receptacle designed to be supported on the bottom of said casing and to receive the garbage, and means to permit the paper receptacle to be removed laterally from the casing.
2. A receiver for garbage and the like, comprising a cylindrical casing, a cylindrical self-supporting paper receptacle adapted to be positioned therein, and a door so mounted on the casing as to permit lateral movement of the paper receptacle to and from the casmg.
3. A receiver for garbage and the like, comprising a longitudinally divided cylindrical casing, the sections thereof being hingedly connected, and a destroyable and fragile but self-supporting receptacle adapted to be supported on the bottom of said casing and removed laterally from the casing.
4. A receiver for garbage and the like, comprising an outer casing and an inner destroyable and fragile but self-supporting receptacle adapted to be supported on the bottom of said casing 'to' receive the garbage, and means to permit said receptacle to be removed laterally from the casing.
5. A receiver for garbage and the like, comprising a cylindrical longitudinally divided casing, the sections thereof being hingedly connected, a removable cover associated with the casing and adapted When in position to hold said sections in closed position, and means associated with the meeting edges of-said sections to frictionally V produce a tight closure and to hold the sections together to facilitate positioning of the cover.
6. A receiver forgarbage and the like, comprising a cylindrical longitudinally dividedcasing, the sections thereof being hlngedly connected, a removable cover associated With the casing and adapted When in position to hold said sections in closed .position, and means comprising a recess associated With one of the meeting edges of 3 said sections adapted to receive the edge portion of the other section to produce a tight closure andfrictionally hold said sections in closed position to facilitate positioning of the cover.
