(Application led Feb. 17, 1898.)

(No Model.)



srEcurcA'rIoN forming part er Letters Patent No. 618,314, dated January 24, 1899.

Application led February 17, 1898l Serial No. 670,647. (No model.)

To @ZZ whom, it may concern,.-

Be it known that I, THEODORE ALBEs, a citizen of the United States, residing at the city of St. Louis, in the State of Missouri, have invented a certain new and useful Improvement in Garbage-Holders, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forming part of this specification,

My invention relates to an improved form of tilting garbage-holder.

My invention consistsin features of novelty hereinafter fully described, and pointed out in the claim.

Figure I is a perspective view of my improved holder,- showing' the cover raised, the holder being shown in its receiving position. Fig. II is a vertical section showing the holder in its delivering position. Fig. III is a like view showing the holder in its receiving position. Fig. IV is a back view of the holder in its receiving position.

Referring to the drawings, 1 represents part 'of a fence or wall having an opening 2, in which my improved holder fits and moves from its receiving to its delivering position, and vice versa.

3 represents the holder secured to the fence 'or wall at the bottom of the opening by means of hinges Li. The general shape of the holder is triangular, consisting of a back 5, a horizontal bottom G, and sides fi. At the front edge of the holder, when in its receiving position, is a low rearwardly-inclined wall 8, that serves to retain the garbage in the holder.

Between the bottom 6 and back 5 is a rearwardly-inclined portion 9, at the upper edge of which are perforations 10. By providing this inclined part 9 and the perforations 10 water or liquid contained in the garbage will drain out through the perforations when the holder is in delivering position, as shown in Fig. II; but when the holder is in its receiving position, as shown in Fig. III, the inclined portion 9 provides a part in the bottom of the holder which will retain the water or liquid and which thus cannot escape on the inside of the fence.

The holder is provided with ears 11, that limit the movement of the holder when it is moved to its delivering position.

At the top of the back of the holder there is an extension 12 and a bent-in portion 13, forming a recess 14. The extension 12 serves as a stop for the holder when in its receiving position, and the recess 111 serves to form a vhandheld by which the holder is changed in position, the ngers being received by the recess, so that they can be pressed against the shoulder 15 and the holder thus pulled outwardly.

16 represents a lid hinged to the inside of the fence or wall and which serves to cover the holder when in its receiving position.

I claim as my invention- A tilting garbage-holder comprising an approximately triangular body having means whereby it is hinged to a wall or fence, a low front wall, a rearwardly and upwardly in clined low rear outer Wall and perforations surmounting the rear wall, the lower portion of the body being adapted to retain liquid when in normal position and the rear Wall adapted to direct the discharge of the liquid through the perforations when the body is thrown back; substantially as described.
