COVER roe REFUSE-CANS.

To all iI-lmm it may concern. Be t known that I. Awamn F. LUY'rms,

ae'itizen of the'lhlited States, and a resident of the city of New York. borough of Man-' hattan. in the county and'State of New York, have invented a new and Improved (over forRefuse-Cans. of wlueh the tollow ing is a full, clear. aml exactdescription. I

The object 'of'the invention is to provide a new and improved cover for refuse cans, arranged to permit the user torea'dily deposit the refuse into the can without danger of theodors arising from the refuse held in the can passing into the kitchen or other room in which the refuse can is located at thetime. and to allow the garbage collector to readily empty the can of itseontents.

ln order to accomplish the desired result.

use ismadeof a cover havinga depending .ilange and a central opening, an auxiliary cover removably closing said central open ing. a bottom attached to the flange and having its central opening in register with the said cover opening. and self-elosing means mounted on the said bottom and normally closing the opening thereof, the said self-closing means being. adapted to open in a 'dmvmvm'd direction by the weight of the refuse. dropped 'ontoithe self-closing means by wavof .the said cover opening.

- I A prm'tieal embodiment of the invention is represented in the accompanying drawings forming apart of this specification, in

"which similar charaeters of reference indiv cate emrespomling 'partsm allthe views.

Figured is :1V side elevation'of the cover; Fig. 2 is a sectional plan view of the same on the line 2-2 of Fig. 1; and

Fig. 3 is a sectional side elevation of the" cover in position on the refuse can on the The top 10 of the cover preferably and is provided with a depending flange'11 and is provided at its middle with a central opening 12 adapted to be closed b an 'apx: iliary cover 13. The edge of the, cover 13' rests on the top 10. and the auxiliary cover is provided with asuitable handle 14andwith a depending flange 15 fitting the wall of tire opening 12, as plainly indicated in Fig. 3.

The f cover is provided with a bottom 16,

having anupwa'rdly extending flange 17 spaced from the flange 11 and having its upper edge 18 hentoutward the lbottomedge Specification of Letters Patent.

7 of usual construction. The bottom ll) with the opening 12 is deposited on the said opening turn or upward'swinging movement of the the refuse to be dropped seat 19 is formed for engagement with the upper edge "ofthe refuse can 20 to close the latter. By the arrangement described the cover is firmly seated on the refuse can 20 is pro vided with a central opening in register and this opening 25 is normally'closed by self-closing doors 26 pivoted at 27 on the bottom 16. The doors 26 are adapted to swing from normally closed horizontal position downward into open in- ]Patented May 22, 3191 "2. Application filed April 6, 1916. Serial No. 89,330.

clined position (see Fig.3) whenever refuse a doors 26 through the central opening 12 of the cover and at the time the auxiliary cover 13 is removed. For the purpose mentioned-the doorsQG are provided with extensions 28 each having a. weight 2-) to normallv hold the correspond ing (loci-"26 in closed position. The doors 26- are somewhat wider than the central 25 in the bottom 1050 that the redoors "26 is limited. as will be readilv understood hv reference to Fig. 2. It will he no- -tieed that when the doors 26 are in closed position the opening 25 in the bottom 16 is emnpletelv closed. and when the user re moves the auxiliary cover 13 then the odors arising from the refuse held in the refuse moo are not liable to pass into the kitchen or other room in which the refuse can is 16/ rated When this cover 13- is removed the user can readily drop the refuse onto the closed doors 26 and then replace the cover 13. vNow the weight of the refuse on the doors ZG'causes the.latter to swing downward into open position thus dropping the refuse into the can and then returning immediatel to closed position. It will he noticed that the space Between the bottom 16 and the top 10 is suiiicientto accommodate into the can 20 and also to accommodate' the counterweighted extension 28 at thesamc the, doors 26 swing into openrp'osition':

The cover showmand described is Very simple .and durable in construction and can he readily used on refuse cans as now generallv constructed.

Having thus described my invention, it claim as new and desire to secure'hy Letters Patent: 1 and soldered or "otherwise fastened to the inner side of the flange-11 a distance above 1.
