Waste basket on separate node

There are two arguments why a integrated waste basket should be mapped separately:

  • The top tag vending machine/dispenser has only weak correlation to waste disposal
  • There are two types of waste bins below the dispenser. Either for dog excrements only, or for all types of rubbish. The latter type should in all times be mapped separately.

There was some german forum discussion.--Jojo4u (talk) 13:04, 17 April 2015 (UTC)

I agree that a general trash bin nearby should be its own node. However the combination amenity = vending_machine, vending = excrement_bags, waste = dog_excrement on one node seems good. Even better would have been amenity = dog_bag_dispenser, dog_waste_bin = yes/no. This is really not the same type of feature as a snack or water vending machine, and not really a good candidate for a trash bin icon either when rendered.

Yes it seems a bit odd since all examples i could find with a google search where for free. So it's more like drinking_water which is not a vending machine. But I don't think it's too far off and tagging already greatly favours vending so I don't see it too much of a problem.
About integrating the waste_basket: Please have a look at the two pictures of the gallery on the wiki page. One shows a waste_basket besides a dispenser. But the other looks more like a usual waste basket which has a dispenser integrated. You want to tag the original example (big picture) in a nice way since bag dispenser and waste basket are one object. But reality has all permutations of integration and type of waste and we would have a special treatment for integrated+waste=dog_excrement.--Jojo4u (talk) 11:45, 19 April 2015 (UTC)

Not vending

These are neither "machines", nor do they sell ("vend") something. I suggest we move these from vending machine to a dispenser kind of tagging. --Dieterdreist (talk) 16:24, 10 October 2017 (UTC)

+1, if it's not already too late... --SelfishSeahorse (talk) 17:40, 25 October 2017 (UTC)
Actually, some may be "vending" the bags (I recall from many years ago, when these were first introduced in my German hometown, that you had to "pay" something like 10-20 Pennies). Clearly the suggestion of "fee=no" for some cases indicates that the whole tag is applied incorrectly in these cases. --Dieterdreist (talk) 10:15, 24 September 2018 (UTC)
