Submit a Map Issue and add notes about what station should be removed.

Waze does not currently maintain a POI database (aside from Gas Stations to facilitate the Gas Prices feature), you have to correct this issue with the third-party search provider that Waze uses (the tabs at the bottom of the in app results screen). Currently the list of third party search providers include Google, Yelp, Yellow Pages, & FourSquare. Waze only gets GPS coordinates and navigates to the closest segment to those coordinates. For more, see item #27 of the Waze FAQ.

An internal POI system is planned, but we don't have an ETA yet

We should be able to add / report new businesses and places out of business. We have a new gas station in my area; but it is not showing up on the map. I could not post the gas prices for it. Also, we have a gas station that is out of business; but the Waze map still shows it there.
