[Tagging] Combined waste/recycling bins

A village a few miles from me (but in a different county) recently got one
these combined litter/recycling bins:

How to tag?  Each of the two sections is around the size of a large
amenity=waste_basket.  The recycling half is a little smaller than the
amenity=recycling + recycling_type=container images in the wiki, and they
are a little smaller than the recycling containers I see around here.

In any case, if I put both of those tags on a node only one of them would
be rendered. If I use two nodes that are almost touching, only one of
them would be rendered.

These combined disposal things appear to be catching on, so I'd
expect to see them increasingly replacing existing
amenity=waste_basket.  It seems to me we probably need a dedicated
tag that everyone agrees on (no chance of that happening) and then
convincing the renderer folks to render it (the odds of that happening
can only be expressed as multiples of the square root of -1).
