Should not the present tags be used?!

fee=   as per http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:fee
That avoids a lot of duplication throughout OSM.

And then the proposal should follow the existing situation.


so tag

amenity=waste_disposal   -exists
waste=dump_station - new

That is how I see it .. either;

you stick with the present system i.e.all waste goes under either 
amenity=waste_basket or amenity=waste_disposal


go with a new top level tag ... waste_collection=*

To say there is no support for a new top level tag waste_collection=* 
based on the talk here .. well there are lots of people not saying 
anything .. possibly they have nothing to add, or just see it as a good 
idea and may vote later or see it as a lost cause. I too would like to 
see them speak up - any direction they chose. But so few speak up. a few 
more vote.
