Proposal

For a place that takes goods as donations maybe for a charity project or for use or selling. The donated goods will be reused and must be in good condition. Because it is a donation, you will not get the material value of the goods in return.

Translation in other languages and synonyms

  • English: Gifts in kind
  • German: Sachspende

Rationale

At the moment some mappers use recycling:*=yes to document that a place takes goods as donations. But with recycling:*=yes it is unclear if it is really a donation or just a disposal.

donation_of_goods=* makes it clear that the goods are reused (possibly sold) and must be in good condition.

Examples

Projects that takes goods as donations:

Tagging

donation_of_goods=*

Tags could be used in combination:

Tag Description
donation_of_goods:network=* Optional. The name of the organisation, project or network for which the items are collected.
donation_of_goods:website=* Optional. A link to a webpage about donation at this place.
donation_of_goods:description=* Optional. A text about donation at this place.

donation_of_goods=yes - If it collects goods as a donation that belong to the same category of goods that the shop sells.

A Semi-colon_value_separator can be used to specify what kind of goods are collected, eg.:

  • donation_of_goods=eyeglasses
  • donation_of_goods=laptops;mobile_phones

Useful combination

This tag can be used in combination with a shop=* or amenity=* to document that this place collects goods.

You can use it with amenity=recycling to describe that the goods will be reused.
