Regardless of whether the main tag should be changed or not, on second thought, I think the following tags should be used:

brand= To indicate how the service is branded, for example, a recycling/bottle return company or the name of the super market where the machine is located

		Located inside and branded as Fresh (a supermarket), the receipt can only be exchanged in Fresh.

		Located outside and branded as Return and Earn (a government scheme), retail vouchers, PayPal an e-vouchers are available.
operator= To indicate who maintains/services the machine, possibly the same as the brand, maybe hard to find out.
breweries= To indicate the brands of containers that the machine accepts
