WASTE CONTAINER Filed 001',- l, 1963 INVEN'gRS CHARLES E R 1 I E- 3 RAY o. STENSON THE/R ATTORNEYS United States Patent 3,190,483 WASTE CONTAINER Charles F. Rohie, Alameda, and Ray 0. Stenson, Oakland, Calif assignors to Gilro Machine & Stamping (10., a corporation of California Filed Oct. 1, 1963, Ser. No. 313,052 1 Claim. (El. 220-18) This invention relates to a waste container as suited for reception of cigarette butts, Waste paper and the like.

The waste container of the present invention is of a very rugged construction and is primarily intended for industrial or institutional use. It is so devised that it remains in place when once installed but is nevertheless readily accessible for removal of waste materials and for cleaning.

It is an object of the present invention to provide a novel waste container, particularly one adapted for industrial or institutional use.

The invention includes other objects and features of advantage, some of which, together with the foregoing, will appear hereinafter when the present form of waste container embodying the present invention is disclosed.

In the drawing accompanying and forming a part hereof FIGURE 1 is a perspective view showing the assembled waste container in position.

FIGURE 2 is a section taken generally along a plane represented by the line 22 in FIGURE 1.

FIGURE 3 is another perspective view showing the waste container open for the cleaning.

The present preferred form of waste container includes a bracket generally indicated at 6 and having a vertical leg '7 adapted to be secured in a permanent manner to a suitable supporting surface as by screws 8. The bracket 6 also includes a horizontally extending leg 9 having a hinge 11 mounted at the front edge thereof. A first portion 12 of the hinge is secured as by rivets 13 to the horizontal leg 9 while the other leg 14 of the hinge is secured by rivets 16 to a container 17, conveniently of cylindrical section.

The container is latched in a first position as shown in FIGURE 1 by an aperture 18 provided cooperatively to fit against a ball 19 on a stop 20 which is riveted on the underside of the horizontal bracket leg 9. The horizontal leg includes a conical depression 21 terminating with an annular member 22 which depends into the interior of the container 17.

In use, waste material passed through the opening provided by the conical depression 21 comes to rest within the cylindrical container 17. The annulus 22 serves to limit air circulation within the container with the result that if a lighted cigarette, for example, is placed in the 3,190,483 Patented June 22, 1965 container and comes into contact with waste paper, the cigarette will smolder for only a very short period of time and then will be extinguished by the lack of air. This insures that a fire will not start inadvertently in the waste container.

When it is desired to clean the container, an attendant merely grasps the lower rear edge of the cylindrical container 17 and swings from the first position shown in FIGURE 1 until it is in the second position shown in FIGURE 3 in which its contents drop readily into another container placed to receive its contents.

From the foregoing we believe it will be apparent that we have provided a relatively novel, simple and improved waste disposal device particularly suited for industrial or institutional use.

We claim:

An industrial waste disposal device comprising:

(a) a bracket adapted to be mounted on a supporting surface and having one leg thereof extending horizontally to a forwad terminal end;

(b) a hinge mounted upon the forward terminal end;

(0) an open top waste container attached at a single point on its upper edge to said hinge, the waste container being movable between a first position wherein the container rests against the underside of the horizontal bracket leg and a second position in which the container is inverted for discharge of waste therein;

(d) a ball latch provided between the horizontal leg of the bracket and the side of said waste container opposite the point of attachment of the hinge to releasably hold the waste container against movement and in the first position; and

(e) a funnel shaped passage for waste provided in the horizontal leg of the bracket and adapted for discharge of material placed therein into the waste container.
