The present sub tag already exists and is in use .. for oil, cigarettes,
grey_water, drugs, dog_excrement, etc .. so they still have to be
evaluated for a true render of the facility. If what is required is a
one tag entry for each waste type then amenity= will be over loaded eg
Note the inclusion of waste in the name .. so people don't think that
they are places that sell the stuff! :)
about 8 + around 28! if you include waste recycling...
and I think it then needs to be a top level tag .. like shop=,
tourism=. sport= etc. as there are too many of them .. and that would be
opposed as it is a lot of work to change the present data and a lot of
work to change the renders... at least another category of amenity ...
