Waste disposal is used for medium and large waste bins, typically for bagged up household or industrial waste. They may be in the street, but they are not primarily for use by passing pedestrians.
It does not include :
- recycling containers or recycling centres (see amenity=recycling),
- small bins (see amenity=waste_basket), nor
- large waste transfer stations (see amenity=waste_transfer_station).
How to map
Place a node at the location of the bin and add the tag amenity=waste_disposal.
