PATENT GARBAG E-RECEPTAC LE.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 667,497, dated February 5, 1901. Application filed September 14, 1900. fierial No. 30,081. (No models To ctZZ whom it may concern:

Be it known that 1, JAMES J. CARROLL, a citizen of the United States, residing at Buffalo, in the county of Erie and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Garbage- Receptacles, of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to an improved can or receptacle for garbage having ventilating pipes so arranged as to give a constant circulation of pure air through the can, and thus carry off the foul gases and stench arising from the garbage; and the object of the invention is to provide a simple, cheap, and sanitary article of this character having pipes aifording air circulation.

Figure 1 is a central vertical section through the preferred construction of my improved can. Fig. 2 is an enlarged fragmentary view to show the protecting-shield for the inlet of the lower pipe. Fig. 3 is an enlarged fragmentary view looking in the direction of the arrow V, Fig. 2, to show the protecting-shield. Fig. 4 is a side elevation of the can-body with the cover removed. Fig. 5 is a central vertical section through a modified form.

In referring to the drawings for the details of construction like numerals designate like parts.

My improved can is composed of a body 1, which is preferably in the form of a cylinder having a closed lower end or bottom 2 and one or more stiffening and strengthening ribs 3 and a cover 4. This cover is provided with an annular flange 5, which limits its entrance into the mouth of the body, and preferably has a top portion 6 of cone formation, from substantially the center of which.

a tube 7 projects vertically upward. The tube '7 is provided with one or more Wire screens, preferably three in number, as shown in Fig. 1, the upper screen 8 being placed in the top mouth of the tube and the intermediate and lower screens 9 and 10 in the lower end of the tube. The top of the body is flanged transversely outward and upward, substantially as shown at 11 in Fig. 1, and a washer 12, of leather or other suitable material, placed upon the lower portion of the cover, having a corresponding beveled exterior surface. The object of this is not only to provide for the easy insertion of the cover,

for preventing the entrance of garbage into a the mouth of the tube is provided, which preferably consists of a sliding protecting-shield 16, having loops 17 extending around the parallel curved slide rods or wires 18. (See Figs. 2 and 3.) The shield is provided with an operating-knob 19, by which it can be moved into either an upper or lower position, and thus protect the tube-opening from the passage of garbage in either direction-that is, the mouth of the tube will be covered and protected from garbage thrown in when the shield is in its upper position and covered and protected from garbage dumped out when the shield is in its lower position. The curved form of the slide rods 0r wires arranges the shield in proper slanting position when in either position and also serves to wedge the shield in its position.

In addition to having the lower end of the tube or pipe 13 open it is also provided with one or more side openings 20, so that should the bottom opening become clogged with snow or other material air will still be admitted through the side openings.

The handles 21 are so arranged that one is in close proximity to the tube 13, so that the tube cannot be injured by contact with a wagon-body when dumping the contents of the can into a Wagon.

In the modified form shown in Fig. 5 the ventilating-tube 13 is arranged upon the inside of the can-body and has its lower end projecting through the can near the bottom. The top is provided with a screen 22, and a cover 23 is hinged to the body and is adapted to be fitted over the end when the can is filled or emptied to prevent the entrance of garbage into the upper end. WVhile for some purposes this may be the preferred construction, such as for a can which is given extra hard usage and upon which an exterior tube is apt to be damaged or broken, it is not genorally preferred, for the reason that the tube within the interior takes up a certain amount of room in the can and also renders the can difficult to close.

I claim as my invention- 1. A garbage-can, comprising a body, a cover, a ventilatingtube extending through said body, and a movable protecting-shield for preventing the entrance of garbage into said tube when said garbage is dumped into or out of said can.

2. A garbage-can composed of a body, a cover, a ventilating-tube extending through said body, parallel slide-rods arranged adjacent to the upper end of the tube, a protecting-shield and loops on said shield surrounding said slide-rods, as set forth.

3. A sanitary garbage-can composed of a body, a vertical ventilating-tube adjacent to the exterior of said body, having its upper end turned into said body, a wire screen over said end, a cover fitted on said body, a vertical tube extending centrally upward from said cover, and one or more wire screens in said tube, as set forth.

4. A garbage-can comprising a cylindrical body, a vertical ventilating-tube having its upper end bent at substantially right angles and extending through said body, a coneshaped cover fitted upon the top of said body and a vertical tube extending upward from approximately the center of said cover.

5. A garbage-can comprising a cylindrical body, a vertical ventilating-tube having one end bent at substantially right'angles and extending through said body, a coneshaped cover fitted upon the top of said body and a vertical tube extending upward from approximately the center of said cover.

6. A garbage-can comprising a cylindrical body, a vertical ventilating-tube having one end bent and extended through said body, a cone-shaped cover fitted upon the top of said body, a vertical tube extending upward from approximately the center of said cover, and wire screens in said tubes.

7. A garbage-can comprising a cylindrical body, a vertical ventilating-tube having one end bent and extended through said body, a cone-shaped cover fitted upon the top of said body, a vertical tube extending upward from approximately the center of said cover, and means for preventing the passage of garbage through said tubes.
