Why a New Tag?

This duplicates the landuse=landfill tag which also applies to "mining waste" (see sample image there). Instead of man_made=spoil_heap, better use a subtag: landuse=landfill + landfill=slag_heap / spoil_heap / whatever (see taginfo). --Fkv (talk) 08:49, 19 April 2016 (UTC)

Many spoil heaps are still visible, but are not in use any more. Therefore landuse=landfill is not appropriate, because the present landuse is not landfill any more (it can be forest instead for example). I tag them with disused:landuse=landfill and man made=spoil heap. Autharite (talk) 12:15, 31 August 2017 (UTC)
In that case, the spoil heap is as disused as the landfill, because the spoil_heap *is* the landfill. Remember that "disused" does not mean "vanished". That's why I prefer disused=yes instead of the disused:* namespace (which is really just used to hide tags from the renderer). --Fkv (talk) 13:31, 31 August 2017 (UTC)
