Status: de facto

Presence of a waste basket at/in a facility like public_transport=platform or amenity=shelter.

How to map

Add bin to the feature with one of the following values:


  • bin=yes: there is a waste basket. Additionally, it may or may not be mapped as a nearby node with amenity=waste_basket.
  • bin=no

Mapping waste baskets as own nodes can add more detail and is needed when someone for example wants to count waste baskets in some area.

Note that without this multiple objects can have bin=yes despite only one waste basket being present (for example, two benches with waste basket between them).
