United States Patent 2,802,434 -GARBAGE AND TRASH DISPOSER UNIT Janet Dowse, Kempton, 111. Application October 12, 1953, Serial No. 385,316

2 Claims. (Cl. 11018) My invention relates to a unit by which garbage and trash may be dispatched from the kitchen and disposed of outside of the house.

In areas not serviced by sewers, where cesspools are commonly used, people cannot enjoy the convenience of a garbage grinding unit. On-farms and rural communities where there is no garbage collection service, this is indeed a problem. Even in good sized cities one often sees along the alley unsightly garbage and heaps of tin cans where flies and mosquitoes breed.

Among the objects of my invention is to solve the foregoing problem by providing a construction whereby garbage may be dispatched directly from the kitchen to a housing outside the house containing an automatic garbage burner.

Another object is to provide means whereby tin cans and other trash may be dispatched directly from the kitchen to an outside housing, dried by heat from the garbage burner.

Another object is to provide the housing with port-able means for emptying the same.

My invention also contemplates such other objects, advantages and capabilities which will later more fully appear, and which are inherently possessed by my invention.

While I have shown in the accompanying drawings preferred embodiments of my invention, yet it is to be understood that the same are susceptible of modification and change without departing from the spirit of my invention. 1

Referring more particularly to the drawings, Fig. 1 is a front elevational view of my garbage and trash disposer unit; Fig. 2 is an enlarged sectional view of the same; Fig. 3 is a sectional view on line 3--3 of Fig. 2 and Fig. 4 is a sectional view on line 4-4 of Fig. 2.

The preferred embodiment selected to illustrate my invention comprises a pair of doors and 11 positioned in the wall 12 of the kitchen immediately above the sink. These doors may be mounted in the wall to open by swinging on hinges or sliding in grooves or any other satisfactory form. Each door may be opened or closed independent of or at the same time as the other door.

The upper end of chute 13 communicates with door 10, and the upper end of chute 14 communicates with door 11. Suitable insulation 15 in wall 12 may be provided around said doors 10 and 11 to make them as near to air tight as possible.

Outside the house and spaced therefrom in the back yard is a housing 16 having a base 17, side walls 18 and a roof 19. An automatic garbage burner 20 positioned on base 17 has a pilot light 21 operated by gas or other suitable fuel. Chute 13 extends through roof 19 with its lower part ending in garbage burner 20.

Positioned adjacent to garbage burner 20 under roof 19 is trash receptacle 22. Chute 14 extends through roof 18 and its lower part extends to receptacle 22. A plurality of spaced air holes 23 are provided in the walls of receptacle 22, to provide circulation of heat from the 2,802,434 Patented Aug. 13, 1957 ice adjacent burner 20. A pipe 24 leading from receptacle 22 to flue 25 of burner 20 increases such circulation. A plurality of spaced wheels 26 are attached to a framework 27 upon which the bottom of receptacle 22 removably rests. Doors 28 are provided in oneof the ,walls of housing 16.

'In use, a housewife with the sink in the kitchen opens door 10 and deposits wrapped garbage down chute 13 to garbage burner 20 where it is disposed of by burning. Tin cans and other rubbish and trash may be dropped by chute 14 in receptacle 22. Receptacle 22 is warmed by heat from adjacent garbage burner 20. This dries out cans and other wet trash and disposes of odors and breeding places for flies and mosquitoes. When the receptacle 22 needs emptying, it may be moved on wheels '26 for that purpose to a desired place and may be detached from framework 27 for removing the contents thereof.

With my unit since the garbage burner is outside of the house, I eliminate unpleasant odors and unwanted heat in the house coming from the garbage burner, and put such heat to use as a drying means for the adjacent trash receptacle. I do away with the need of garbage cans in the kitchen and trips outside of the house in nasty weather for their disposal.

Having thus described my invention 1 claim:

1. A garbage and trash disposer unit comprising a housing having a base, side walls and a roof, an automatic garbage burner positioned on said base having a flue extending through said roof, a receptacle also positioned on said base adjacent said burner and in heat exchange relation to same and having a plurality of openings, a pair of independent chutes, each of said chutes extending from the outside through said roof, one of said chutes leading to and extending within said :burner whereby garbage may be dispatched from the outside to said burner for incineration, the other of said chutes leading to said receptacle whereby tin cans and other wet unburnable trash may be dispatched from the outside to said receptacle, and a pipe leading from said flue of said burner to said receptacle and terminating at a side thereof opposite from said burner, said burner providing heat for burning the garbage therein and also heat through said pipe and the openings of said receptacle for drying out the tin can-s and other wet trash in said receptacle.

2. A garbage and trash disposer unit comprising a housing having a base, side walls and a roof, an automatic garbage burner positioned on said base having a flue extending through said roof, a plurality of spaced wheels movably mounted on said base, a framework mounted on said wheels, a receptacle removably mounted on said framework, said receptacle adjacent said burner and in heat exchange relation to same and having a plurality of openings, a pair of independent chutes, each of said chutes extending from the outside through said roof, one of said chutes leading to and extending within said burner whereby garbage may be dispatched from the outside to Said burner for incineration, the other of said chutes leading to said receptacle whereby tin cans and other wet unburnable trash may be dispatched from the outside to said receptacle, a pipe leading from said flue of said burner to said receptacle and terminating at a side thereof opposite from said burner, said burner providing heat for burning the garbage therein and also heat through said pipe and the openings of said receptacle for drying out the tin cans and other wet trash in said receptacle, one of said side walls of said housing having a pair of doors so that said receptacle may be moved on said wheels out of said housing and temporarily detached from said framework for the removal of the trash and tin cans therefrom and said receptacle then upon 3- 7 4 being again mounted on said framework adapted to'be 1,561,804 Stohr h Nov. 17,1925 returned on said wheels to said housing. 1,724,575 Graver Aug. 13, 1929 7 1,968,006 Willey July 24, 1934 R'eferen cesCited in thefileof this' patent' 2,177,328 Pender Oct. 24, 1937 UNITED STATES PATENTS 5 FOREIGN PATENTS 606,483 Goodridge June 28', 1898 193,425 Germany Jan. s, 1908 958,265 L0we May 17, 1910 623,437 Great Britain" May 17, 1949 983,765 Raggio Feb; 7, 1911 680,132 GreafBfitaim "Oct; 111952
