  • Patent number: 5011168
    Abstract: The present portable garbage container includes a housing, and a cover which is slidable and tiltable relative the housing. As the cover is slidable from a seat and into a transverse slot formed in the housing, the cover tilts so as to shift its weight to a sidewall of the housing, which facilitates the sliding of the cover and allows an efficient opening of the container. The cover is also efficiently closed by tilting the cover inwardly. The cover subsequently slides down the slot and into the seat.
