Tesco also operate a chain of smaller shops, Tesco Express which I would
tag as shop=convenience rather than supermarket.

Sainsburys, likewise have Sainsburys Local which are also convenience

Your note on the Tesco recycling facility did make me laugh though. 

Until recently Tesco did have automatic recycling machines, which gave
you loyalty points for aluminum drinks cans. These have now (locally at
least) been removed and replaced with more traditional recycling bins.
