The subject sounds like the disposal of the complete bbq.

Most of the public bbqs here are electric or gas to avoid the problems 
of fire risk and ash disposal, so not something I come across.

As Paul says

amenity=waste_basket (or waste_disposal if it's very big) + waste=*

waste=fire_hot? To denote the capability of tolerating hot items. For 
safety reasons I would expect these not to tolerate unburnt flammable 
items, I expect vandals will place cardboard and paper in them...

Err... It does cause me to double think. I expect OSM not to abbreviate, 
yet on the odd occasion it does.
