Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Should I use amenity=recycling for containers that collect clothes, books, etc for donation? It's not really the correct interpretation of "recycling" (which is processing waste into a reusable base material), but I see it's been used like that in various places.

There was a proposal to create amenity=donation for things like this but it was rejected. Given there are ~40K amenity=recycling recycling:clothes=*, I think it's pretty well established alternative.
