YOUR TURN: How Should Malden Handle Trash?
Your comments about "Pay As You Throw" got us thinking - what's your best out-of-the-box idea for making Malden trash collection better?
Last week's article about new changes to the city's Pay As You Throw program got us thinking – in a perfect world, how would you throw out your trash in Malden?
Would you keep the general system, but improve the quality of blue bags? Lower their cost?Offer residents large, single barrels? Privatize the collection of trash?
Residents in Revere have a program in which residents are offered rewards for the amount of property recycled per household – could something similar be offered in Malden?
