The wiki seemed to suggest that was for containers - recycling points
where stuff was left. Which didn't seem to fit.

I used amenity=scrap_yard and scrap-yard=metal until I had something
better. I have just realized that I should really have asked on the
tagging list, so will cc that in.

Thanks for the reply.
