How do I purchase additional trash or recycling carts?

Residents have the option of purchasing additional recycling and/or trash carts.  Each additional cart purchased can be used in the exact same way as your primary city-issued carts.  They can be purchased in two ways:

  • Purchase online using credit card or EFT.  Orders can take up to two weeks to fully process and carts will then be delivered to your home.
  • Purchase in person by cash or check at the Malden DPW located at 356 Commercial St.  When purchasing in person, you must be able to take home whatever you purchase as we do not offer delivery for in-person purchases.
