Have you seen our team out on the street? It's been one year since we implemented our new trash and recycling cart program and we've seen a few issues. While the program is running great, it can always be better. We are looking to reduce litter and keep critters out of the trash.
This summer we are sending out a team of trash and recycling ambassadors who are looking for opportunities to improve. You may see one of our "Oops" hangers on your cart or hanging on your door. This doesn't mean that you are being fined or that your trash will be rejected. We just want to let you know that something "wasn't quite right" about the way you prepared your trash and recycling.
Official Malden Trash and Recycling Carts
Households in Malden are granted one trash and one recycling cart and residents have the option of purchasing additional carts.
You can purchase additional carts online by credit card and carts will be delivered to your Malden address. Alternatively, you can purchase additional carts at the Malden DPW Yard. Purchasing at the DPW Yard will require you to take away your own cart and only cash is accepted as payment.
