The containers in your photos would IMHO qualify for street cabinet.

A waste transfer station I would expect to be some biggish plant where
trucks unload the waste, and where eventually recyclable ressources like
metal are removed before it goes to the landfill / waste incinerating plant.

something like this:

this is (or was) a plant from the 80ies for sorting waste into different
fractions of reusable material, it started as a pilot project but is unused
for more than 20 years now because the federal government was pursuing a
different strategy how to deal with waste then (they let citizens sort the
waste beforehand and collect it already seperated rather than collecting a
mixture and do the sorting in the plant):
