Application aieii october a1, 192e. serial No. 143,121.

This invention relates to new and useful improvements' in arbage containers and it relates more particularly to the novel arrangement and construction thereof.

A particular object of the invention is tol understood from a perusal of the followingl ldetailed Idescription-in connection with the accompanying drawings land wherein:

Figure 1 is a side elevational view.. Figure 2 is avertical sectional view along s line 242 of Figure 1.

Figure 3 is a cross-sectional view along line 3 3 of Figure 1.

Figure 4 is a top plan view of the cover.

Figure 5 is a vertical sectional view of a modified form of the container, Figure 6 being a cross-sectional view .thereof along line 6 6.- i

Figure 7 is a detail view of a means for. holding the container in position.

Figures 8 and 9 are detail views showing means for reduction of sack or bag area.

Proceeding in accordance with the d rawings and wherein similar numerals indicate the various parts, 1 denotes a plurality 'of vertical wires or rods, secured in any preferred manner to a bottom ring 2 and to a top ring 3 and forming an outer cage.

Spaced across the bottom ring 2 are reinforcing rods 4. Each rod 1 includes an extension in the form of a leg or legs 5, but which legs likewise may be otherwise forned and( at-v tached. i .i

Tlieoutside cage forms as it were a body or support and on the inside of this cage is a secondary cage which consists of the diagonally disposed wires 6. lThese wires are directed inwardly from the top ring 3 and, bottom ring 2 and are also connected to a central ring 7 In thel center of the inner cage is a basket 8 secured at its bottom to the cross rods 4 and extending upwardly and terminating just below 'the ring 3. This basket forms the support for a bag or sack 9'which is placed in the basket and is of such length or depth las topermit its upper edges 10 to be folded over the top of the basket. Attention is here invited to the fact that no special form vof sack or bag is required as an ordinary paper sack or bag such as is used in carrying groceries or the like, may be used. The main point is that the sack or bag should be long enough to permit its edges to lap over the top of the basket. The bottom 11 of the bag i or sack is supported upon the bottom of the basket, the latter being of sufficiently tight mesh asto exclude insects.

Hingedly connected to the top ring 3 at 12 is a closure 13 including a latch 14. This i closure has a central opening around the margin of which is a conical flange 15.- The object of this Harige is that when advanced y, inside the sack or bag the edges of the bag will be held in place. If preferred the ange may be curved slightl firmly hold the edges o the bag or sack over the top of the basket.

-On the closure 13 is a. secondary cover 17,

pivoted by a bolt 18 to the closure and including a fastener 19. This cover may be slid or moved laterally aside in placing garb-` age in the sack 9, clearly shown in Figure 4. yA modiication ofthe container yis illustrate-d in Figures 5 to 9 respectively, and

wherein, in Figures 5 and 6 the basket 8 is divided into two equal parts and ,hin ed at. the bottoml at 2O to rod 21. These divided parts are held in circular formation by the props-f 21, swingable from the top ring 3. Slight pressure on lthe props will permit 'them to ride over the lugs 22 and prevent their dropping downward.

IThe object of the divided basket is to pe'ras at' 16 to more sov mit easy withdrawal of the bag in/'case it should'be overfilled and fit too closely to the` basket, Thus when the bag is filled,the.'

edges brought together and tied, the props canbe dislodged and on separation of the divisonal parts, the bag easily removed. It should be understood that the receptacle or garbage container is not limited to any particular size or of any particular cony struction and by way of modiic'ation in this respect includes, as shownin Figures8`and 9, a reducer ring 23, includingpthe lugs 24. This ring is supported upon the rim of the basket 8 and a smaller sackmay be, snugly 15 keeping with the appended claims.

What is claimed is: y '1. A garbage receptacle comprising a Obviously further modifications may bel made in the construction of the invention in framework and including a cage, Va basket seated within the cage; sai-d basket formed of two equal parts swingable apart' and 20 adapted to receive a sack or bag 1n which the garbage is placed; a. vmain c osure and an auxiliary closure for the basket; and a reducer ring.

2. A garbage receptacle as set out in claim 25 1 and wherein said main closure includes' an openin with an inwardly and downwardly directe circular member which seats within the basket to hold and lock the sack in place;

and wherein sai-d auxiliary closure is pivoted I30` to move from and over said opening.

In testimony whereof I aix my signature.
