I don't agree with the dog=yes, that would mean that you can put the dog into the waste basket. :-) BTW, for the plastic bags issuing, it would be better to tag it as amenity=vending_machine, vending=excrement_bags, fee=no, see e.g. "Hundekot-Tüten-Spender" on the german page

The clear consensus is as SomeoneElse describes above, I actually have an smaple map running (just for Switzerland):

Hi dcp, since those elements are placed in the open, consider amenity=waste_basket, dog=yes using a combination of existing tags. Both elements are almost everywhere together to prevent soiling our living spaces, from Switserland to Belgium.

Thank you: Wouldn't it be a good idea to add this tag combination to the amenity=waste_basket description

Sorry DCP but Escada found the right in German and excisting tag for these kind of waste disposals, follow his link. The DE community is making a lot of tags and combinations :)!
