In Norway there is something called''pant'', one version of this is you deliver it into a machine and get money in return, the other but recently I noticed a metal tube with a sticker saying PANT on it, so it's a small tube for putting small bottles and soda cans in for recycling, of course you get no money in return. https://no.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panteordning_for_flasker

here you can see examples of what I mean: https://flic.kr/p/2kt7VMY https://flic.kr/p/2ktbDBw

Here's how I tag the bottle deposit machines:

amenity=recycling
recycling=deposit_redemption
recycling_type=machine
recycling:cans=yes
recycling:glass_bottles=yes
recycling:plastic_bottles=yes

This isn't a widely used tagging system, but I hope it catches on!

(Some mappers use the term "reverse vending machine" for a machine where you put something in and get money out. I'm not fond of this for these recycling machines because then there's no way to tag a machine that does not give money, which I'm sure exists somewhere.)

To tag the recycling tube that's on the side of a waste basket, I'd just map the waste basket and add the appropriate recycling:* tags on that:

amenity=waste_basket
recycling:cans=yes
recycling:glass_bottles=yes
recycling:plastic_bottles=yes

This does not address the problem, mentioned in https://help.openstreetmap.org/questions/51408/is-there-a-better-way-to-tag-a-bottle-return - a deposit return place would not accept other packaging. Reverse vending at https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:vending%3Dbottle_return seems to work well, and a machine that does not give money would be just standard recycling stuff :)
