Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0984104A1] A refuse collection device includes an elongated tubular assembly comprising an inner tube (3), an intermediate tube (2) and an outer tube (1) telescoping each other and a bag mount (5) supporting thereon a refuse collection bag (6) attached to the lower end of the tubular assembly and closable by means of a pivoting cover (53). A manual control is provided, including a first grip (45) fixed to the outer tube (1) and a second grip (44) fixed to the intermediate tube (2) so as to allow the first grip (45) and the outer tube (1) to be movable relative to the second grip (44) and the intermediate tube (2) between an upper open position and lower closed position. The cover (53) is coupled to the outer tube (1) so as to be driven thereby between the open position and the closed position. Spherical members (413) are received within openings (412) formed on the intermediate tube and spring-biased to selectively engage a recess formed (461,462) on the outer tube (1) so as to secure the outer tube (1) in the open position. The inner tube (3) is also movable and spring-biased relative to the intermediate tube (2) to expand and thus securely hold the collection bag (6). A releasing mechanism is provided to move the inner tube (3) relative to the intermediate tube (2) against the biasing spring (54) for releasing the bag (6). The releasing mechanism also functions to release the outer tube (1) from the open position. <IMAGE>
