Acceptable and Unacceptable Items for Bulk Pickup

Have bulky items the city won’t pick up? You need a junk removal service.

If you have large items that the city won’t take from you, you may need to hire a junk removal service.

Junk removal services are not be as picky about the items they’re collecting so if the city won’t take the item, this may be your best bet. There’s usually a fee involved with junk removal but most companies can tell you ahead of time approximately what it’s going to cost.

There are a number of junk removal services in Malden and I’m sure many of them will be able to help you out.

Recycling Collection Calendar 2024

Here’s the link to the recycling collection schedule.

Recycling is picked up weekly on the same day as your trash collection and must be placed in a blue City-issued wheeled recycling cart or in a receptacle such as a standard trash barrel with a special recycling label sticker that can be stuck on the receptacle. Residents are encouraged to recycle as much accepted recycling material as possible at no charge for pickup.

Recycling Procedures

Please keep these tips in mind to avoid having your recycling rejected:

  • Download a Quick Reference Flyer (PDF) on proper recycling procedures.
  • Malden is a single-stream community which means all materials eligible for curbside recycling can be mixed in one cart.
  • You can purchase an extra blue City-issued recycling cart either by purchasing them online or by visiting the DPW.  
  • You may convert most any lidded plastic container such as a spare barrel or toter style wheeled cart into a recycling cart by affixing one of our free stickers to the side. These stickers can be obtained from City Hall or the Malden DPW.
