landuse=depot is a big mistake

Single tag for everything that can be called depot including tram depots, warehouses, 
container depots, bus depots, aircraft boneyards, areas for storage of produced vehicles
and more - while adding one more landuse value.

I would tag such bulk material storage area as landuse=industrial + industrial=warehouse.

Or something completely new like man_made=bulk_storage
