Title: Y-shaped garbage and recyclables separating disposal system

Abstract: A Y-Shaped Garbage and Recyclables Separating Disposal System that consists of a top with two chutes attached to each other at an angle and a stand supporting a foot pedal on the floor, and two containers. One of the containers stores garbage, and the other, attached to the recyclables chute, for recyclables. The drop chute and the recyclables chute are attached to each other forming an upside down "Y" (referred to as "Y-Shaped chute"). The drop chute is vertical allowing anything drop into it to go through it without any obstacle. The recyclables chute is attached to the drop chute at an angle in the middle of the drop chute. The recyclables chute is normally blocked by a blocker not allowing garbage to go into the container for recyclables. The blocker is operated by a foot pedal that is attached to a vertical stand by a hinge and a spring and connected with the blocker by a spring. To deposit recyclables, the foot pedal is pressed down. In this position, by pulling the string connecting the foot pedal with the blocker, the blocker is pulled back, forming an inclined plane for leading recyclables into the chute and container reserved for them. The blocker and the foot pedal return to their normal up position by releasing the foot pedal.
