Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19911407A1] The invention relates to a method for emptying a container (1) which is detachably connected to the housing of a vacuum cleaner and which receives at least some of the dirt (3) that is separated from the suction air of the vacuum cleaner. According to said method, the container (1) is coupled with a waste disposal container (26) prior to the emptying process, with its emptying opening (27) positioned tightly next to the filling opening (28) of said waste disposal container, which has a closed holding area (5). The dirt that has collected in the container (1) is then emptied into the waste disposal container (27). This method enables the container to be emptied without releasing dust.
