Malden Trash and Recycling Carts

About The New Program

The long-awaited change to Malden’s Pay-As-You-Throw (PAYT) trash and recycling program is just weeks away. Mayor Gary Christenson held an informational webinar on Thursday, March 18th where a presentation was given about the implementation of the new changes to the PAYT program. As new trash and recycling carts will begin arriving at homes in April, this meeting addressed questions residents had about the program, how it will roll out, and why the City believes these changes will solve many issues.

The meeting can be rewatched on the City's YouTube Channel
