Yard Waste Pickup Schedule

Yard waste must be placed curbside on your scheduled pickup day in brown paper bags or in barrels marked “yard waste” and must be separated from regular rubbish. Yard waste that will be accepted includes leaves, grass clippings and twigs. No branches, logs or dirt will be picked up.

Collection occurs seasonally between April and November during designated weeks on your trash day.  To find out your specific yard waste collection days, search your address on our trash app below.


Malden residents can also bring yard waste to the DPW City Yards at 356 Commercial Street between the hours of 9:00 AM and 3:00 PM Monday through Friday and between the hours of 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM Saturday. No plastic bags will be accepted.
