Title: Refuse collecting and disposal handling (Team II USA)

Abstract: A refuse collecting and disposal handling vehicle know as TEAM II USA.TM. is basically two vehicles working together in a tandem. The parent vehicle is arranged and configured to properly lift and empty a front-loading refuse container. The companion vehicle (The Accumulator) is arranged and configured in a trailer mode. The parent vehicle that tows the Accumulator is further arranged internally with a mutilating device which will, upon demand, process the bulk refuse received and converts it into many bits and small pieces, chips and saw dust. These bits and pieces are allowed to drop into a strong wind stream, which will transfer the bits and pieces into the Accumulator via a transition wind tunnel. Once the bits and pieces enter into the Accumulator a secondary strong wind source further pushes the flowing bits and pieces whirling them around into a collection chamber, where yet another strong high velocity wind source is applied and permits the flowing materials to whirl around a back pressure platen device. Then the materials being blown and sucked under a strong high velocity wind pressure will arrange themselves occupying all available space to form a neat packed and compacted refuse bale automatically, much like materials being sucked up by a household vacuum cleaner. Once the Accumulator is filled to capacity, it may then be uncoupled from its towing companion vehicle and parked aside for further servicing. With very little waste of time, the Accumulator is rehitched to a more economical towing vehicle, allowing the parent vehicle to continue servicing the route. The Accumulator is then towed to the landfill and returns empty for reuse.
