An apparatus for sorting articles on a conveyor system that includes a pair of parallel conveyors each having an endless conveyor member or belt. The belt of a first of the conveyors is tilted laterally to the horizontal, and the belt of the second conveyor is located at about 90. degree. with respect to the belt of the first conveyor, thus providing an elongated L-shaped pocket or channel within which articles are conveyed. The lower side edge of the second conveyor belt is spaced from the upper surface of the first conveyor belt to provide a passage therebetween, and a pusher member is mounted for sliding movement within the passage. When directed by a computerized system, the pusher member is actuated to move across the first conveyor belt to engage and eject an article laterally from the first conveyor belt to a collection site.
