The wiki says:
"Centres are dedicated ... recyclable household materials."
The place I am tagging deals mainly with industrial and commercial
scrap, although they will *collect* suitable domestic metals if they are

Either the wiki is too restrictive, or there is a need for more refined

This fits with my previous comment that recycling_type=business feels
like a better fit. "centre" does suggest somewhere open as a public

Both scrap yards near me are in old quarries and not necessarily open
to casual callers: they don't feel like "centres"...
