Sites for recycling waste

My local council has household waste sorting sites that are mainly for people to dump recyclable materials. Will 'waste transfer station' suffice here? --LeedsTracker 23:45, 29 September 2008 (UTC)

Nuclear waste

How to tag nuclear waste location. Some site store short-life nuclear waste in open storage (or in pool), some others site store long-life nuclear waste. Sometime in deep underground location.

Extend landfill tags

Proposition :

  • landfill:type=* (surface, underground, underwater...)
  • landfill:source=* (nuclear, domestic, industrial)
  • landfill:nuclear=* (short-life, medium-life, long-life)

How to map disused and vegetaded landfills?

Many landfills get closed one day and maybe vegetaded. In this case, should the tag landuse=landfill be kept (in my opinion yes)? Maybe with a disused and/or vegetaded tag? --Max Muster (talk) 09:36, 26 July 2013 (UTC)


How do we map facilities for shredding paper documents, computer equipment, phones, etc in a secure way? e.g.,

  • recycling:paper=shredding
  • recycling:data_media=shredding
