Where are these private bathroom/s, trash can/s and water tap/s you mention Martin?

There are a few bathroom=* on the data base .. according to the values most of them are private but some are public.
No wiki page .. 12 users. They all appear to be toilets. So incorrectly tagged anyway - I expected a bath!!

I see no reason why 'private' things need another tag.

Private jetties get the same tag, private roads same tag ...
