Discards on the race road can be quite dodgy. I think that the safest way to approach the issue is to tip a little from the neck, take as much drink as you need, then fully empty the bottle before discard. At Bristol I recall that they did have strategically placed skips, and it was still quite difficult to hit them. On smaller races I do try to hit the bin bag, and that is ironically easier, because you can move to the road side with ease.

More of a challenge at London and Bath was the Lucozade Sports pouches. Tread on a half full discard and it shot foul smelling stuff up your leg, or worse, over a spectator.

Why do a 10k race require water stations?  Are peopel not able to run that far with out a drink?

Best i saw was the John Austin half this year, runner in front had a belt with small water bottles so was surprised when they took a bottle from the water station.  they only managed a mouthful and dumped the rest on the floor.  Idiot.
