I believe they are schemes where other items also have a deposit, such as newspapers.  So rather then container_return, how about:

deposit_return_scheme=yes deposit_return_scheme:type=counter/machine

These tags can be added to shops, breweries, recycling centres, etc. Reverse vending machines can also be tagged individually to be more complete. 

Do we continue to use payment:* or switch to deposit_return_scheme:cash/token/etc

I know a shop, where yogurt jars and some kinds bottles are taken at a checkout, but other bottles at a reverse vending machine. Its usually one checkout in that shop, in the beverages department with own entree, but direct connect the rest of the shop via a lift.
