Become a Snow Removal Contractor

ShovelpreneurThe City of Malden Removal of Snow and Ice from Sidewalks Ordinance requires every home and business owner to remove snow and ice from sidewalks abutting their property.

To help residents who need assistance in complying with this Ordinance, the City is working to compile a list of Service Providers who will perform snow and ice removal services for a reasonable fee.  Will you participate? Residents and service providers will make their own arrangements relative to scope of work, time of performance, fees and payments.
