Residents can now purchase an annual trash tag either online at cityofmalden.org/trashtag or at the Treasurer’s Office at City Hall (215 Pleasant St.). A trash tag will enable residents to place any bagged household trash inside black city-issued trash carts. The trash tag sticker is to be placed on the front of the cart just above the cart serial number.
Trash tags are best suited for residents who regularly produce enough trash to fill their black cart each week. At a yearly price of $75, residents will save money over the course of the year by switching over to a trash tag. Residents may still choose to purchase and use Blue PAYT bags as they provide both an option for weekly overflow or for those residents who produce less than one full cart of trash per week.
