Better.. hmm ..
It is one level up .. so more prominent
It is combined with other waste things - thus easier to find for both
mapper and render
The sub tags used for both non recycled and recycled would be the same -
thus making a simpler system .. for both mapper and render
Does it harm the present recycling tagging? Or simply replaces it?

Using tag info .. there are few used ...
lots of =glass (and glass_bottles)
A few recycling_types ... mostly container, centre etc

Possible... yes. But why would you? The good thing about combining them
is that they are very similar;
would use the same sub tags eg volume
would make mapping them easier - same main tag used
would make rendering easier - same main tag used, same sub tags used
If I come across a waste bin .. but I don't know if it is for recycling
.. I can map it with this scheme ... and simply leave off the
recycling=yes tag .. as both recycling=yes and recycling-=no are simple
sub tags under the waste_collection scheme it becomes much easier to tag
it later with any knowledge of its recycling status... Where as separate
schemes will become disjointed - with different tags used and thus
harder to retag from one to the other.
