Recycling is used for a container or centre that accepts waste for recycling, and donations of used goods.

This tag is for sites where waste of specific types is accepted to be reused or recycled - if the site is for disposing of arbitrary waste, consider a different tag as listed under Waste Processing.

How to map

Draw a node or an area and add amenity=recycling + recycling_type=*.

Recycling type

Tags used in combination

  • operator=* - responsible organization
  • opening_hours=* - opening hours of the centre or usage period of a container
  • capacity=* - the total capacity of a container in m³


Recycling

  • Used to describe sites only accept specific types of waste. recycling:*=* is therefore used to list all materials you're allowed to recycle or donate.
  • Use material=* to describe the material of the container itself.
  • Adding one or more types of waste with yes implies that all other types are considered not accepted.
  • Adding a more general type or category of waste (e.g. recycling:scrap_metal=yes) implies that more specific types of waste within that category (e.g. recycling:aluminium) are also accepted.

recycling:beverage_cartons yes | no node area Carton package (multi-materials, e.g. Tetra Pak) for drink and food – possible duplicate of more frequently used recycling:cartons=*. Röntgen aseptic carton.svg
recycling:cans yes | no node area Many places are tagged as accepting cans without recycling:metal=* in general.
recycling:cartons yes | no node area Paper based cartons (for drink or food). Likely to be data of low value due to mixing paper cartons, multi-material cartons like Tetra Pak by various mappers. Röntgen aseptic carton.svg

recycling:plastic yes | no node area In the UK at least, often centres/containers will distinguish between (broadly) hard plastics (typically ones that shatter), soft plastics (typically bendy food packaging; black food plastic may be an exception), carrier bags, and all other stretchy plastics. Many will accept only a subset of these, so try to pick more specific categories if you can.
