Our trash carts are 35 gallons which is the equivalent of one blue PAYT trash bag. If you have more than this in a given week, you have two options for overflow trash.
Option 1: You may either buy a blue PAYT bag and place it in a covered trash barrel or cart labeled as “Trash” with a red sticker offered free at the DPW.
Option 2: You can purchase additional black PAYT carts from the City of Malden. The price of the cart will be listed with our online system. They will always be priced at the City’s cost which means they are not marked up in price like you would pay at a store such as Lowes or Home Depot.
Once additional carts are purchased, they have the same options as your primary cart; blue PAYT bags or the annual hang tag.
