v(This invention` relates to 'a' receptacle'for `waste products of an. kind and-oneth'at is particularlyv adapte for accommodation within doors since it offers facilities Afor plano- 4 ing material thereinand for removing the accumulated material without displacement of any of the surfaces of the receptacle that may Y bein contact with the walls'or objects in the n room.: vIt is especially 'adapted for use in enf 1() vironments where Lquietness is desired in that the hingeddoor normally closing the opening provided for the'jdispositionV of the material is automatically and silently returned to a vclosing'positionon removal of the slighty pressure 15 I required to open it; i y l l e It isfan object of this'invention to provide a receptacle that by virtue of having kno'm'ov` ingVv or movable partsor projections on fthe f y sides orI back thereof maybe placed solid againstthe Wall or against the walls o f a cori -of a recessfor that may ner'or the walls built into the wal Itis another ob] from withoutmoving the allotted positioni @n n 'It isa further object of this inventionto provide a convenient method for the removal of thecontents lof the receptacle turbing its position,
It isa still'further object of this invention to provide a receptacle having a normally Without disclosed entrance that can be opened by slight pressure for the deposit of material and that will be automatically and silently closed upon the removal of the pressure. l
.It is yet another object of this invention to provide a receptacle that presents a neat substantial appearance, that' is sim lev of construction and economical to manu acture, and that is sanitary in its operation.
. Other and further important objects of thisv invention will be apparent fromI the dis,-V
