[Tagging] Tagging amenity=waste_basket

According to the Wiki-page, the tag amenity=waste_basket should be put 
to a node. I found ways tagged with this tag [1] in Bakersfield, 
California. Is that wrong ?

I think yes, because a waste basket is normally a small amenity. 
Therefore a node is sufficient. If it is bigger, than it should be 
tagged as amenity=recycling. Any comments ?

I would replace them by a single node and add the tags of the way to it.


PS: Same with amenity=bench [2]
