WASTE' snoEPrAcLn Y v.Application filed February This invention relates to new and useful ix'nprovements'in a waste receptacle.

One object of the inventionis to provide a device of the character described specially designed to receive waste paper and other waste articles, and also embodies a spittoon which forms part of the receptacle, and which is normally covered.

Another object of the invention is to provide a device of the character described composed of an outer shell with a removable waste container therein, and a removable spittoon arranged to lock the container in position against accidental displacement.

A. further feature resides in the provision of a foot lever connected to the spittoon cover through which said covjer may ibe lifted, to open the spittoon, by the depression of said lever.

The invention also embodies suitable ash trays and a match and cigar holders, said trays serving also as closures for top openings in the shell through which waste articles may be deposited in the container.

A still further feature of the invention resides in the provision of a waste recep- .Ytacle which is neat and attractive in appearance and which is yspecially adapted for use in offices and similar places.

lVith the above and other'objects in view the invention has particular relation to certain novel features of construction, operation and arrangement of parts, an eXample of which is given in this specification and illustrated in the accompanying drawings, wherein i Figure 1 shows a front elevation of the device.

Figure 2 shows a vertical sectional view.

Figure 3 shows a horizontal sectional view on the line 3-3 of Figure 2; and,

Figure 4 is a plan view, partly broken away.

Tn the drawings the numeral 1 idesignates the outer shell or casing, which is box-like in form. The device is preferably mounted on casters Vas 2. The rear side. of the shell is open, and fitted through said opening there is a waste container 3, whose top is open. This container fits snugly through said opening and extends across to the front wall of the shell 1. The top of the shell has an elliptical opening 4, near the front side to receive a correspondingly shaped spittoon 5V which has a margnal flange s, i924. yseriai No. 691,382.

6 which rests on the top of the shell to support the spittoon. The lower end of the spittoon lits down into the Acontainer 3, as yshown in Figure 2, and locks said container against withdrawal until said spittoon has been withdrawn. This will prevent the accidentalwithdrawal or displacement of the waste container. The kwaste container has suitable hand grips 7, 7, by means of which it may be handled. l

The shell is extended upwardly in the rear of the spittoon forming the upward extension 8. There is a cover 9 hinged to the forward side of the extension 8, and having the inwardly extended arms 10, 10,

which project through suitable openings 11 in said front side.

Each link has a yieldable section, as 17. When the lever 12 is depressed the vcover 9 will be elevated to uncover the spittoon, for use, and when the foot lever is released the cover will close by gravity. y

The front wall of the extension 8 has an opening 18, normally closedby the inwardly swinging door 19 which is hinged at its Lipper edge, to said front wall. This permits access to the waste container for the deposit of waste therein.

A waste receptacle including a shell the shell, whosek lower end projects int'o said container and locks the same against removal, a hinged cover for said spittoon, a foot lever connected to the shell, operative lili connections between the lever and coverV foot lever connected to the shell, operative connections between the lever and cover through which the cover may be lifted by the manipulation of the lever, said shell having an inlet opening above the container, an inwardly swinging door normally closing said opening. 1
