July 12, 1932. c. F. HALE GARBAGE CAN mamm- Filed March '7, 1951 y VEN TOR.

A TTORNEY6 Patented July 12, 1932 PATENT OFFICE CLARENCE F. HALE, OF SYRACUBE, YORK GABBAGE CAN CABINET Application fled March 7,

This invention has for its object, a cabinet for garbage cans and the like, which is mountable as a unitary structure in the wall of a building, as the cellar wall, and particularly means by which the cabinet is normally closed to both the interior and the exterior of the building, and is readily operable to make the garbage can therein accessible to the interior or the exterior of the building.

It further has for its object, a ventilating means, and also means by which the odors are prevented from entermg the interior of the building when the container is closed.

The invention consists in the novel features and in the combinations and constructions hereinafter set forth and claimed.

In describing this invention, reference is had to the accompanying drawing, in which like characters designate corresponding parts in all the views.

Figure 1 is an elevation of this cabinet, partly in section, taken from the outside of the building.

Figure 2 is a sectional view on line 22 Fi re 1.

igure 3 is asectional view on a reduced scale taken on line 33, Figure 2.

This cabinet comprises generally, a frame, as a rectangular frame designed to be set into the wall, as the cellar wall of the building, a garbage can carrier mounted in the frame to move about a vertical axis and having means for normally closing one side, as the outer side of the frame opening, by which the garbags can is accessible to the collector from the outside of the building, and a spring pressed door on the inner side of the wall and the frame, by which the garbage can is accessible from the inside of the building, and the odors are excluded.

1 designates the wall, as the cellar wall of a building.

2 designates generally, a rectangular frame mountable in a correspondingly shaped opening in the cellar wall. This frame may be of any suitable form, size and constructiomand includes strips 3 of sheet metal forming a metal lining for the opening of the frame in which the garbage can carrier is mounted.

4 designates the carrier, this being cylindri- 1981. Serial Io. 520,858.

cal in general form and formed of sheet metal. It comprises upper and lower discoidal heads 5, 6, and a part cylindrical wall 7, this wall be1n g substantially semi-cylindrical. The heads are provided with axles 8, 9 at their upper and lower ends, one or both of these preferably being journalled in ball bearings 10 in the frame 2, or the sheet metal strips 3 along the upper and lower members of the frame.

The part cylindrical wall together with the heads 5, 6 form a closure for the frame opening on the outside of the building.

11 is the door for closing the inner side of the wall opening, and the inner open side it of the carrier 4. This-door is part cylindrical in general form and has upper and'lower segmental heads 12 and 13 which close against the frame, thus forming a complete closure for the inner opening of the frame 2 thereby 7o preventing fumes from the garbage from enterin' the buildin The door 11 is held in closed position an automatically returned to closed position when released, by a spring 14, this being located adjacent one of the heads 5, 6, of the carrier 4, it being here shown as located adjacent the lower head 6 and as lying on the periphery thereof, the lower head 6 being formed with an angular marginal flange 15 on which the spring 14 rests. The spring. is here shown as a coiled spring anchored at one end at 17 to the frame, and at its other end at 18 to the door 11. The door 11 is also provided witha spring catch 11 and can only be opened from the so inside. V

19 designates the garbage can which rests on the lower head of the carrier 4, and is preferably of less height than the carrier in order to ermit the cover of the can to be removed an the garbage placed in the can without removing the can from the carrier.

Means is provided for ventilating and carrying off such fumes, the ventilating means being a pipe 20 extending through the upper 05 frame member and communicating with a vent opening 21 in the upper head 5 of the carrier 4, the vent opening 21 being normally alined with the pipe 20. The pipe 20 is extended up through the wall of the house, and

drical wall between the heads, the heads havthrough the roof of the house, where it discharges into the outer air.

In order to make the carrier weather proof, means is provided for sealin the joint between the upright edges of t e carrier and the frame. This means being illustrated as stops 22 along the upright members of the frame against which stops-the edges of the part cylindrical wall of the carrier normally abut, the wall being provided with outwardly extending flanges or lips 23 for coacting with the stops.

In operation, the part cylindrical wall of the carrier 4 is preferably located on the outer side of the wall, and the door 11 on the inner side, and when it is desired toplace garbage in the can, the operator opens the door by means of the spring catch 11 on the door, so that the garbage can is accessible. After depositing the garbage in the can, the door is allowed to close. The garbage collector turns the carrier by means of a handle 25 on the carrier, thus bringing the open side of the carrier to the outer side of the wall opening.

Owing to the part cylindrical wall of the carrier, and the upper and lower heads, and also to the fact that the edges of the part cylindrical wall close against stops, the container is practically tight against the outlet of fumes, except through the vent pipe.

This unitary structure is particularly advantageous in that it can be manufactured as a unit and applied as a unitary article to the building structure.
