AsH AND GARBAGE BECEPT CLE;

1,17saso.

Application filed September 12 1910. Serial No. 581,691.

To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, GEORGE B. MARX, at

citizen of the United States, and a resident of New York city, borough of Manhattan,

county and State of New York, have inconnection with dustless 'ash carts, and which are constructed and arranged to cooperate] with covers to openings in the cart body in such a manner that the ashes may be dumped from the receptacle into the cart body, without allowing dust to escape into theair.

One of the objects of the invention is to provide a receptacle of this general type which is simple, durable, eflicient and easily constructed. 7

Another object of the invention 1s to provide a receptacle of the above type the body.

portion of which is cylindricaland provided with a suitable sliding cover, and more par ticularly to provide the cylindrical body portion with a suitable flat sliding cover arranged and constructed so that it will cooperate with a suitable sliding cover on the cart body to permit the contents of the receptacle to be dumped into'the cart body without allowing dust to escape into the air.

Other objects and advantages of the invention will appear from the following description taken in connection'with theaccompanying drawings in which Figure 1 is a perspective view illustrating the preferred form of my invention a nd Fig; 2 is a side elevation Of the same Wlth the sliding cover swung down on its hinge out of position. Referring to the drawings, 1 is a cylindrical can body made preferably from galvanized sheet iron which may be strengthened by any well known means such as vertical ribs 2. A flat rimor flange member 3, preferably of sheet iron, is secured at the top of the cylindrical body, preferablyby.

means of a vertical flange t'which is stamped up from the flat rim member 3 and fits snugly over the outside of the cylindrical body to which it is fastened in any sultable' manner such as by rivets, crimping or welding. The parallel side edges of the r1m member 3 are suitably shaped to form'par Specification of Letters Patent.

allel guides'or slideways 5 on which-a rigid sliding cover 6, preferably made of sheet iron, is adapted to slide back and forth. The front end 7 of the rim member 3 is pref.- erably bent up to form a forward stop for the sliding cover 6, while projecting strips from the rear of-the rim member 3 are, suitably bent to form eyes or stirrups 8 each of which'carries ahing'e member 9 pivoted thereto the outer leafor strap of which is bent to form'an auxiliary slideway 10 for the cover 6. The-cover is provided with a vertlcally projecting rib or bar 11 having shoulders 12 which enga-ge with correspond ing shoulders 13 formed in the auxiliary slideways 10 "to support the cover when it is withdrawn and swung down in the position shown in Fig. 2. The sliding cover 6 is also provided with a vertically projecting transverse rib 1% the purpose of which is to engage in a suitable recess or groove in the sliding cover'to the cart-opening in order that the two covers may bemoved si-' multaneously by a single operating means such as fully described in the co-pending application to 'Putzel' and Marx, Serial No. 578,75d, filed August 24th, 1910.

j Inorder toswingingly support the receptacle'on the body of the cart as shown and described in the above mentioned application, the receptacle is provided with two hooks 15*which are suitably secured'adja lie flush upon the sliding cover to thejopening in the body of the cart, as shown and described in saidapplication.

While I have .shown and described with particularity what I consider the best form of my invention nowknown to me, in which the parts are made of sheet metal, it is 010- vious that various changes in the construction and arrangement ofp'a'r'ts may be made without departing from the spirit of my invention. Obviously, the rim or flangemember 3 may be of any suitable shape or form and made from any's'uitable material.- Also, the guides or slideways need not be made an integral part of the rim member 3, and may be formed-of any suitable material and the slidin cover 6 and hold it in position to closethe receptacle when in an inverted position; and obviously the rim member 3 may be secured to or united with the body of the receptacle in any suitable manner instead or" having the continuous vertical flange snugly fitting the body portion in the manner herein described. Also, the hinge members through which the cover slides and which support the cover in its vertical position, may be arranged in any suitable manner which will permit the cover to be withdrawn from the slideway and swung down out of position.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:
