We'll have to agree to disagree then.

As a concept OSM maps what is seen on the ground.
  The present waste type things are taged as to the thing collected .. 
not what is seen on  the ground...

Should not the tag there be primarily on that thing on the ground?

Certainly for the solid wastes ...
capacity - would indicate the size ... probably in litres as that looks 
to be the way the things are specified?
receptical - wheelie bin, skip bin .. and others .. names/descriptions 
to be found ... ?

and then lastly what goes in them?

Just a though ... any comments ...?
I know that the person looking to dispose of a certain thing will search 
for that .. but once found they'd like not only the location but the 
size and description would be handy?
