pillar of a public_transport=platform?

For separate waste baskets, I'm following the scheme of


Where the "B101" is printed on the waste basket in huge letters.

Similar, there are waste baskets integrated into the pillar of a bus stop's 
platform also having a "B42" well recognizable.

Up to now, I've created separate nodes very close to the platform node for the 
After re-reading the wiki on public_transport=platform and re-opening the 
dialog of JOSM's preset, I realized that I should tag it with the platform via

I also tag the waste_basket's ref. Should I do




I hope, I haven't kidnapped this thread.

Kind regards
