Abstract (en)

A waste container includes a metal body (11) having a peripheral wall (111) defining a compartment (112) for receiving a garbage bag (15). Mounted above the body (11) is a cover (13) having a lid (133) movable between an open position and a closed position. An electrostatic device (2) is mounted to the cover (13) and operably connected to the lid (133). The lid (133) is moved from the open position to the closed position when the human body is within a detection range of a sensor (21) of the electrostatic device (2). A hollow frame (12) is mounted between the body (11) and the cover (13) and includes a perimeter wall (121) made of non-electrically conductive material. The body (11) is spaced from the cover (13) by the perimeter wall (121) and located outside the detection range of the sensor (21), preventing electrostatic interaction between the body (11) and the sensor (21).
