'wIIiLrAivr o. BUNNELL ANDVQUINCY A. cfATias,` or WILKEs-BARNE, :PENNsYLvANIA a eaaniaAorn RaonP'rActn.`

reageer.'

'To 'all whom t may concern: l

`Be itknown that-we, VVILLIA'M 0.4BUN- NELL and QUNoY A. GATES, citizens of the United States, and residents of Wilkes- Barre,`in the county of Luzerne, State of Pennsylvania, have invented certain,` `new and useful Improvements inf Garbage-Re ceptacles, of which the following is a speci-' fication.

The present invention relates to the class of metallic shipping and storing vessels and has particu-larreference to newY and useful improvements in garbage receptacles.

` r1`he primary object of our invention is to provide a new and improved type of garbage vreceptacle which has-means associated therewith to prevent the obnoxious odors therefrom interfering with the person desiring to deposit garbage in the said receptacle. i

Another obj ect of our 'invention is'to-provide a garbage receptacle having a novel type of closure which may be opened only when a partition separating the garbage receptacle from a -housing formed therein is in closed position.

` A stilll further object of our invention resides in the provision of a device of the'- character described that is simple in construction, efficient in operation, and that can be manufactured and placed on the market at a minimum cost.

Other objects as well as the nature, characteristic features and scope of our garbage receptacle will be more readily understood taken in connection with the accompanying drawing, and pointed out in the claims forming a part of this specification, in which:

Figure 1 is a side elevational view of a garbage receptacle embodying the improvements of our invention; and

Fig. 2 is a vertical sectional view taken on the line 2 2 of Fig. 1.

Fig. 3 is a fragmental detailed view showing the st rip as attached to the door.`

Referring more particularly to the drawing, wherein similar characters of reference designate like and corresponding parts throughout the various views, 1 designates the body of our improved garbage receptacle, the same having the usual bottom 2 therein. The body of the receptacle is open at the upper end and is provided with a conical closure 3 hinged at A to the peripheral wall of the body. A locking hasp 5 is pivotally connected as at 6 to the said conivnated` H in Vits entirety.

cal closure, the hasp'having a commoncpen- The hasp, of course, when the lock is removed from the staple provides a handle for opening: the. said closure means.

Asup'plemental opening is pro-vided in the peripheral wall. of the body` 1 adjacent the upper free'end thereof, said opening being closedfby acurved door -8 and mounted in a guide frame 9 carried by the upper frame of the said body 1. A sliding partition 10 forms a bottom for a housing desig- Ahandle 11 is pivotally connected to the outer or exposed end-of the partition 10 to withdraw the partition 10 when the door 8 is in closed position. v 1 l A strip of metal 12 is soldered or secured in some other suitable .manner to the door 8. The said strip 12, and metallic laterally extending iange 13 formed from the bottom of the partition 10 provides the guiding means for the lower edge of thesliding .curved door 8. The strip 12 also provides a means for preventing the withdrawal of the sliding'y partition when the door is inlopen position as best shown in Fig. 3. A plu rality of Leshaped lugs 14C are mounted on the rear end of the partition 10 to limit the rearward movement of the same. The handle 15 is mounted on the sliding curved door vto facilitate opening and closing of the same. A vert-ical iange 16 formed on the peripheral wall of the body limits the sliding movement of the door when the same is being closed. When the sliding door has been opened and has passed beyond the flange 13 it engages a supplementalA flange f 18 formed in alinement with the said flange. In operation when it is desired to insert garbage within the receptacle the sliding door 15 is opened and the garbage deposited on the partition 10. The sliding door is closed and the partition 10 is withdrawn by means of the handle 11. During this operation it is of course obvious that the garbage deposited on the partition will be removed therefrom and deposited in the body 1.

We desire to lay particular stress upon the fact that none of the obnoxious gases generated in such receptacles would nauseate the persons depositing the garbage in the receptacle as the supplemental housing and the partition 10 serve to retain the said gases in the body of the receptacle.

From the above description taken in con-l nection with the accompanying drawing, it can be easily seen -that We lhave lprovideda device that is simple in construction, fcon-v taining but a few simple parts that canbe cheaply manufactured and assembled and vvhen assembled "can 'be placed uponthe market and sold at a minimumlcost'. Y

' It will be understood that the above description :and accompanying edrawing comprehend onlyfvthe general embodiment of our garbage :receptacle 1 and that Avarious 'minor ychanges fin `details of construction, :proporv :'gtionrand arrangement-of the parts mayfbe made Within vthe scope `of vthe appended claims ",Withoutlsacricing any of ,the .advantages l of -four invention.
