This is quite close to the question, how to tag collection bins for charity 

We have a whole set of tags for recycling, maybe we should copy that for all 
kinds of reuse instead. That would be for places to leave things for reuse

For places to get things for free, one could maybe use shop=* and then some 
other tag to show it is for free. Maybe payment=free.
