Specifically, I am planning to map the trashcans in my city. Is there a way to not see all the other landmarks to make visualizing the trashcans easier?

yes, try this (the quick'n'dirty solution):

  1. go to http://overpass-turbo.eu/
  2. centre the map on your city
  3. click "Wizard"
  4. enter the tag you like to see (e.g. amenity=waste_basket)
  5. hit "build and run"

You could use the OpenPoiMap
Clear the 'user POIs' box and add amenity=waste_basket and then select show in the same box, zoom in to the area of interest and you can see where they are tagged as such in the osm.
A very useful recently available tool.

Using an umap instance, for example umap.openstreetmap.fr, together with data obtained from overpass is likely the easiest and best looking solution. See http://www.mappa-mercia.org/2014/09/creating-an-always-up-to-date-map.html for instructions.
