Abstract (en)

The invention relates to a subterranean storage system (2) for a container, preferably a waste disposal container, wherein opening and closing of a lid (6) that covers the system is not to be performed manually and separately when the system is operated. Opening and closing of the lid (6) can be performed by the same drive unit as is used for driving the platform. The lifting means comprise at least four straps (10), in which the platform (8) is suspended, said straps (10) being, via rollers (16,28) at their one end, connected to the platform (8) and synchronised by means of rollers (16,54) and a shaft (32), wherein rotational energy can be supplied to the shaft (32); and wherein the straps (10) are, at their other end, conveyed over reversing rollers (24) and are directly or indirectly connected to elastic means (11) and to the lid (6); wherein the weight of the platform (8) has such magnitude while being located in its lower position with the straps (10) unloaded, that rotation of the shaft (32) for winding the straps will initially deform the elastic means (11), and thereby move the lid (6) towards its open position until a stop is reached, following which further rotation of the shaft (32) for winding of the straps (10) will elevate the platform (8) towards its upper position. <IMAGE>
