FREDERICK 'W'. BRIESE, OF J AMAICA, NEW YORK.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, FREDERICK W; BRIESE, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Jamaica, in the'county of Queens and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Garbage-Cans, of which the following is a specication.
This invention relatesto a garbage can of novel construction in which the escape of foul odors, while the can is being charged is prevented, while furthermore, the spilling of the garbage as the can is dumped is effectively avoided. v
In the accompanying drawing:
Figure 1, is a longitudinal section on line 11 Fig. 2, of the garbage can embodying my inventiop;
Fig. 2, a plan with the cover removed andthe slide closed, and
Fig. 3, a cross section on line 3 3 Fig. 1. The can body 1, is furnished at a suitable distance below its upper edge, with a grooved guide 2, for the reception of a slide 3, that is adapted to divide the can into a larger lower compartment at and a smaller upper compartment 5. The shape of slide 3, corresponds to the cross section of the can body 1 the slide being circular with the cylindrical body illustrated.
The slide is providedwith a semicircular flange 6 and a handle 7 and may be retracted from the can, through a semi-circular slit 8 formed within or opposite to groove 2. In order to guide slide 3 during its movement there extends diametrically across can body 1 in proximity to slit 8, a rod 9 engaged by a pair of perforated lugs or members 10, that depend from the slide, and of which the foremost lug likewise constitutes a stop which holds the slide to the can bodyin' the open position of theiormer. Within the upper compartment 5 there extends from the inner wall of the can body, a chamber or pocket 11 which is adapted for the reception of a suitable disinfectant carrier 12. This carrier may be introduced through a larger openin 13 formed in the top of the pocket, whi e the disinfecting vapors are discharged through smaller openings 14. The inner upright wall 15 of pocket 11, is made of convex form, so that Specification of Letters Patent.

.the can is opened, and the garbage is thrown into the upper compartment 5, the disinfecting vapors escaping from pocket 11 while the cover remains open. The cover is then closed, the slide withdrawn to dump the garbage into the lower compartment 4t and the slide is again closed ready to the next charge.
Q When the contents of the can} are toibetransferred to the garbage collecting wagon,
cover 18 is opened, but slide 3 remains.
closed until the can has been lifted into the wagon, so that in this way, any spilling of the garbage is prevented.
