Warin, lets face facts, only you and I have spoken in favour of
waste_collection=.  Two have spoken against it. Need I remind you of the
words of the OSM Guardians before they left this mortal world =

"Yea, be there but one nay vote, there must be no less than 10 and 5
votes, less the proposal be lost"  The First Wiki, chap 7, verse 4
waste_collection= is not going to fly !

So, we need to chose between 

* leaving it as it is - easy choice
* Adding dump_station to waste=  - consistent with whats there now.
* Adding dump_station to amenity= - easier to map (?)

Honestly, by a small margin, I'd prefer middle option. If we move human
waste out of waste=  why not the others ? 

But I don't care !  Please, put something up for a vote and I'll vote
for it. Just get it done, this has gone on for far too long.
