Inconsistency bin/waste_basket

According to this documentation a standalone waste basket is named as (amenity=)"waste_basket", but if the same feature is located at a bus stop, it should be named "bin". Is there any reason for this inconsistency? I tend to tag waste_basket=yes at a bus stop to not have different descriptions for the same feature. --HeikoE (talk) 08:42, 30 March 2015 (UTC)

The reason is this was defined in 2013 rather than 2014 and is used more often. I'm not too happy either about it, I would be happy to see it deprecated - e.g. with a proposal.--Jojo4u (talk) 13:22, 30 March 2015 (UTC)

bin=yes

waste_basket=yes

Inconsistency with https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:highway%3Dbus_stop

The values should be yes / no / separate according to the bus stop page https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:highway%3Dbus_stop. For example:

  • bin=separate: there is a waste basket within a few feet, but it is not built in to the stop pole or shelter.

And the note presently against stop=yes would make more sense to be transferred to this option. So the result becomes:

  • bin=yes: there is a waste basket, which is built in to the stop pole or shelter.
  • bin=no
  • bin=separate: there is a waste basket within a few feet, but it is not built in to the stop pole or shelter. Additionally, it may or may not be mapped as a nearby node with amenity=waste_basket.
