I believe there are still some issues with this proposal.

For one the concept is still not clear/logical with the currently suggested
IMHO you should decide whether this tag will work like
waste_collection=type of collected waste or like waste_collection=type of
waste collectors (object). Currently you are mixing up those two (e.g.
"cigarettes" is a kind of waste, "household_bin" is a kind of object to
collect waste),

Secondly, the chosen generic term looses scale / size information, compared
to introduced tags like waste_bin.

The suggested key waste_collection=* doesn't give any information on the
amount you can dispose at these places. Are these to be used on big
plants/centres as well as on small bins? Then I'd expect to have another
subtag to denote the size / amount of material you can dispose. E.g. for
building material or earth you'd expect to be able to bring lorry loads of
material, while for drugs or batteries the most common features are only
accepting household quantities.
