Probably not as this is almost certainly too vague.  

There are already hundreds of those, mostly in New Zealand, that seem to work fine.   When looking at a list of
campgrounds, it's helpful to know which ones have a sanitary dump station, even if those campgrounds are only
mapped as nodes.

I meant geographically too vague, as we're talking about navigating something in roughly the same dimensions, weight and steering dynamics as a PSV or a HGV in many cases.  It's way faster, safer and easier to plan it so you can reach it going forward than it is having to back up for it, after all.

Are there any rendering packages that can be set to render private objects for only a preset list of operator tag values? So, if an association of recreational vehicle owners has waste disposal stations only for registered users, a map generated by that association could show dump stations open to the general public, plus dump stations open to their members, while not showing dump stations open only to members of competing organizations?

Yes, that can be be done in almost any of the OSM rendering sytems.


Note the tagging proposal on the table uses "network=" for regional networks of dump stations.

A good RV dump station map would use colors or some such:
  Free == Green
  Paid, drive up == Blue 
  Plan ahead (join the network first) == Purple
  Destination only == Gold
  Backyard Dump Stations == Black

A given recreational vehicle owners association could filter the map and eliminate non-matching network locations.

If the campground is mapped as a node plus a website, and the website says there is a dump station,
it's reasonable to add sanitary_dump_station=yes.  You'll stop at the office to pay, and get directions to the actual dump
station.  Then map it on your mobile phone :-).
