Dear Mr. Franco:

In your letter dated November 6, 1998, which was received by this office on January 13, 1999, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The container opens up into a cylinder shape measuring approximately 18.75 inches in diameter by 22.75 inches high. It can be collapsed and held flat by toggle buttons and loops on the sides. The container can be used to store laundry, toys, towels, etc. and is designed to be placed on the floor or ground.

The applicable subheading for the storage container will be 9403.80.6040, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other furniture and parts thereof: furniture of other materials, other, household. The rate of duty will be free.
