N0. 511,156.. Patented Dec. 19, 1893.






ll SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No.

511,156, dated December 19, 1893.

Application filed February 20,1893. Serial No. 463,069. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that l, OSCAR CHARLES NEW- TON, a citizen of the United States, residing at Buifalo, in the county of Erie and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Sanitary Garbage- Receptaoles; and I do declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to the letters of reference marked thereon,which form a part of this specification.

This invention relates to certain new and useful improvements in garbage receptacles and means for supporting the same.

It has for its objects among others to proride for the storing and disposal of the refuse or garbage in each household in a more cleanly way than heretofore.

It has for a further object to provide such means as may be obtained by each and every family.

I propose to dispense with the heavy metallic garbage receptacles now employed and to provide a light and portable receptacle which ordinarily is designed to be filled with the refuse and then thrown away and a new one substituted therefor. I provide a receptacle in the form preferably of a large bag with open mouth designed to be hung upon pins or like supports carried by a strip of wood adapted to be secured either perma nently or detachably to any object, as a fence, or the woodshed, the receptacle being of some cheap and suitable material, as for instance, waterproof paper of sufficient stability and strength to sustain the garbage and not to be rendered useless by the absorption of the liquid from the garbage. In its preferable form the staples upon which a hinged cover is supported have their endsextended through their support to form the pins or hooks upon which the receptacle is to be suspended.

Other objects and advantages of the invention will hereinafter appear and the novel features thereof will be specifically defined by the appended claims.

The invention in the present instance resides in the peculiar combinations, and the construction, arrangement and adaptation of parts whereby the above ends, and suchothers as may result from the invention, are attained, all as more fully hereinafter described, shown in the drawings and then particularly pointed out in the claims.

The invention is clearly illustrated in the accompanying drawings, which, with the letters of reference marked thereon, form a part of this specification, and in which- I Figure 1, is a perspective view of my improvement set up for use with .the cover or lid thrown up, and Fig. 2, is a detail section of the same.

In carrying out my invention I take a strip of wood A of suitable dimensions and provide it with two or more holes a for the reception of nails, screws or other means of fastening; or the holes may be omitted and the fastening means passed'through the said strip by driving or otherwise, but I prefer to place the device upon the market with the opening for the reception of the securing means. To this strip is hinged a lid or cover B preferably of metal and of the desired length and width. This cover or lid is hinged in the following manner: O are pieces of wire or staples held in the strip A,the same consisting each of a piece of wire having one end held in the said strip and turned to form a curved support and the other end passed through the strip and extending substantially horizontally from its front face on a lower plane than the staples or curved portions as shown, the said ends being turned up and forming hooks D upon which the receptacle is designed to be detachably supported as shown. The cover or lid has the holes I) through which the staples or curved portions of the wire loosely pass and the cover is thus hinged to move easily; it is held in an inclined position by reason of its engagement with the front upper corner or edge of the strip A and the upturned ends of the hooks as will be readily understood. This cover serves to close or cover the mouth of the receptacle and to shed the rain and the snow.


tacle an nreve tits being. t ski-Wmby the weightof the garbage. This bag or receptacle I form preferably of some water-proof material as paper suitably treated or made so that it will not absorb the moisture from the garbage. Any cheap processandm aterial or materials may be employed for the purpose. In, practice it is proposed to nail or otherwise faste th str p up n he fenc hed .Q

any other desired placeand to suspend the receptacle from the hooks'in the man'ne'rs'h'own, the cover being designed to be normally lge'fp't downso as to cover the mouth ofthe receptacle and shed the rain orsnow. Wheni't'is desired. to place garbage in therecept acle the cover is raised and the ref use placed in t'hebag.

s the'isfanie away with itsco'ntents and place a new'receptacle in' its place; theieceptacle may however be'use'd over and over, but it is proposed to make them so cheap that they may be thrown filled.

The advantages of such a device, from a sanitary view will be readily appreciated and its use recommended.

What I claim as new is hestn p pro ide w t hissedsw and pins or hooks, and a1 flexible water-proof away as soon as they are bag like receptacle ,detachabljs spended from said hooks, as set'fortli."

2. The strip provided with staples extended to form hooks or pins, a cover having openings through which said staples loosely pass to form hinges upon which the cover may tur rthesai .qoye .beinsarreneed to when closed in an in clined position, and a flexible bag-like waterproof receptacle having open mouth and detachably suspended from said hooks beneaththe"aidlcoveijfsubstantially as shown and described? In testimony whereot l affix my signature in p e'oftwo witnesses. When the latter is'full it'is'pr 'p take l n ewes lNitnesses: i ME RLE A. lfANNER,
