12F.TAlLEQ QESCEtq,MQ1I

[0028.1 A washing device for fecyclable container (10) has a base (12) from
which perpendicularly extends a stand (14).

L{)()291 The washing device for recyclable container (10) is preferably placed
inside a sink (11) and has a hose (16) connected to a faucet (18).

[0030] A spray tube (22) is terminated at its upper end by a nozzle (28) from
which emerges water. The spray tube (22) can rotate in relation to the
sliding arm (24) to accommodate containers (25) of varying sizes. Also,
the nazzle (28) can have adjustable flow rates as well as a rotational

spray head. These types of nozzles are known in the art and need not
be further discussed herein.

[0031] The base (12) consists of individual foet (42) which can optionally be
telescoping in nature and whiCh can be terminated by suction cups (15)
to hold the washing device fQr recyclable container (10) inside a sink

(11) or any such Iocation, Suction cups and telescoping feet are known
in the art so no further details is needed. A ball (17) is located at the
upper end of a stand (14) and is used for pressing the washing device
for recyclable container (10) down so that the suction cup (15) can be
effectively installed, it also serves to hold and stabilizre the washing

device for recyclable container (10) since water pressure and the


CA 02601205 2007-09-14

installing and removal aF the containers being washed could otherwise
displace the washing devir.e for recyclable container (10).

[0032] The hose (16) is connected to the faucet (18) at one end and to a
connector (19) at its opposite end. The connector (19) is "Y" shaped
when there are two spray tubes (22). From the opposite end of the

connector (19) extends at least one sub hose (40), two sub hoses (40) if
the connector is `'Y shaped and more sub hoses (40) if there are more
than two spray tubes (22). The sub hose (40) connects the connector
(19) to the spray tube base (50), The spray tube base (50) has the spray
tube (22) extending therefrom.

100331 A valve actuator (20) is actuated by way of a stem (21) extending
therefrom. The action of inserbng a container pushes against casters
(30) actuated by inserting a container between the stem (21) and the
spray tube (22). The valve actuator (20) is mechanically connected to

the valve itseN which is not shown since it is located inside the spray
tube's base (23). The inner workings of the valve and the manner in
vvhich the valve actuator (20) interacts with the valve itself is derived
from methods well known in the art and need not be discussed herein.

[00341 At least one sliding arTn (24) extends from the stand (14) and can
slide
sideways, so as to allow the spray tube (22) to move sideways to allow
for larger containers to fit in without conflicting with other parts. The


CA 02601205 2007-09-14

sliding arm (24) consists in two parts, a fixed arm (32) and a telescoping
arm (34) as best seen in fig. 4.

i00351 In an alternate embodiment, the washing device for racyclable container
(10) can have only one spray tube (22). Of course, there could also be
more than two spray tubes (22) without departing from the scope of the
invention.

10036] In order to use the washing device for recyclable container (10), it is
put
inside a sink (11 ) or related type tub or basin so that sprayed water will
be collected. In order to use the washing device for recyclable container

(10), a user instalis a container so that the spray tube (22) is nested
inside the container and the stem (21) located outside of the container.
The action of inserting the container in such a manner depresses the
stem (21) which actuates the valve actuator (20) which opens the valve,
which brings water to the nozzle (28)_ The water is sprayed inside the
container (25) so as to wash and rinse it.

[0037] As to a further discussion of the manner of usage and operation of the
present invention, the same should be apparent from the above
description. Accordingly, no further discussion relating to the manner of
usage and operation will be provided.

10U3S1 With respect to the above description then, it is to be realized that
the
optimum dimensional relationships for the parts of the invention, to
include variations in size, materials, shape, form, function and manner of
opention, assembly and use, are deemed readily apparent and obvious

to one skilled in the art, and all equivalent relationships to those
illuStrated in the drawings and described in the specification are
intended to be encompassed by the present Invention.

[0039] Therefore, the foregoing is considered as illustrative only of the
principles of the invention. Furttter, since numerous modifications and
changes win readily occur to those skilled in the art, it is not desired to
limit the invention to the exact construction and operation shown and
described, and accordingly, all suitable modifications and equivalents
may be resorted to, falling vrithin the scape of the invention.
