Claims
1. Waste receptacle (1) comprising a base (2), a rear wall (3), two side walls (4 and 5 respectively) and a front wall (6), which walls (3, 4, 5, 6) are inclined so that the horizontal cross-section is smaller at the base (2) than at the top of the receptacle (1), that the receptacle (1) is provided with wheels (7) arranged at the base (2), which wheels (7) are used when moving said receptacle (1) and preferably a lid (8) which is uniform or divided into sections and suitably arranged at the upper end (9) of the rear wall (3), c h a r a c t e r i s e d in that the wheels (7) are each attached to one slewing bracket (70) which is provided with a rotation axle (71) and a pivot axle (72), whereby the rotation axle (71) forms the rotation axle for the wheel (7) while the pivot axle (72) forms the fulcrum of movement for the slewing bracket (70) and that the rotation axle (71) and the pivot axle (72) are parallel to the rear wall (3), whereby the wheels (7) can be moved between a temporary position and a regular position, in which regular position the receptacle (1) by being inclined somewhat can be moved by being rolled on the wheels (7) and in which temporary position receptacles (1) can be nested into one another.

2. Receptacle (1) according to claim 1 c h a r a c t e r i s e d in that the wheels (7) are arranged at the rear wall (3) when in the regular position.

3. Receptacle (1) according to claim 1 or 2 c h a r a c t e r i s e d in that the rotation axle of the wheels (7) is parallel to the rear wall (3) and the base (2) when the wheels (7) are located in both the temporary and the regular position.

4. Receptacle (1) according to any of the claims 1 - 3 c h a r a c t e r i s e d in that the wheels (7) are placed inside the vertical extension of the side walls (4 and 5 respectively) when situated in both temporary and regular position.

5. Receptacle (1) according to any of the claims 1 - 4 c h a r a c t e r i s e d in that the slewing brackets (70) can be snap-fitted to the surrounding walls (74) in at least the regular position.

6. Receptacle (1) according to claim 5 c h ar a c t e r i s e d in that the slewing brackets (70) are snap-fitted into the regular position by being provided with at least one rotation axle peg (71') which engages one rotation axle hole (71") each which holes (71") are placed in the surrounding walls (74), whereby the snap-fitting is accomplished by forcing the surrounding walls (74) outwards when the rotation axle peg/pegs (71') is/are forced towards guiding wedges (75) at the lower part of the surrounding walls (74) whereby the surrounding walls (74) snap back when the rotation axle peg/pegs (71') is/are aligned with the rotation axle hole/holes (71").
7. Receptacle (1) according to claim 5 c h ar a c t e r i s e d in that the slewing brackets (70) are snap-fitted into the regular position by being provided with at least one axially resilient rotation axle peg (71') which engages one rotation axle hole (71") each, which holes (71") are placed in the surrounding walls (74), whereby the snap-fitting is accomplished by forcing the rotation axle peg/pegs (71') inwards when it/they is/are forced towards guiding wedges (75) at the lower part of the surrounding walls (74) whereby the rotation axle peg/pegs (71') snaps/snap back when the rotation axle peg/pegs (71') is/are aligned with the rotation axle hole/holes (71").
8. Receptacle (1) according to any of the claims 1 - 7 characterised in that the slewing brackets (70) for both wheels (7) are connected to each other by means of a connecting axle (71'") so that the two slewing brackets (70) form a unit.

9. Receptacle (1) according to any of the claims 1 - 8 c h a r a c t e r i s e d in that the receptacle (1) is provided with a lid (8) which is provided with an operative and a stow-away suspension means (81' and 81" respectively) at the rear end (8') of the lid (8), which operative suspension means (81') is intended for a moveable attachment of the lid (8) onto pivot axles (82) at the upper end (9) when the receptacle (1) is used in a normal way, whereby the lid (8) can be opened and closed, and that the stow-away suspension means (81") is used for attaching a lid (8) onto the pivot axles (82) when a number of receptacles (1) are nested in one another.
