Subject renamed for clarity.

* 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 (?)
>> ...I vote for the middle option: waste=dump_station

Thats a very good point Martin, a dump station is not a "waste" but it
is an amenity. 

That does differentiate it from much of the the other items listed under
waste=. We tend to use the name for the waste itself in many cases but,
I guess because of its nature, prefer to name the facility rather than
say "excrement", "sh**", whatever.

Quite a good argument for elevating the proposed dump_station to amenity
rather than waste= in my opinion.

Thanks Martin
