My city doesn't provide a map of recycling container locations. So I thought it would be a good idea to provide something OSM-based. The data is already contained in openstreetmap. So the question is how to easily generate a map where these specific locations are marked more visible than the usual rendering of recycling containers.

The "no programming" solution to your question is to use umap (for example umap.openstreetmap.fr) together with a query of the overpass API for the recycling locations. You can use http://overpass-turbo.eu/ to design the query.

http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/UMap has some examples listed. In particular this one http://umap.openstreetmap.fr/en/map/pere-lachaise_6765#16/48.8613/2.3953 which uses that technique.
