The city of Malden is looking into making changes to its trash program and has created a survey to hear from the public, according to an announcement from Mayor Gary Christenson.

Christenson said he has organized a group of volunteers to look into possible changes for the trash program, commonly referred to as pay-as-you-throw. 

Established in 2008, the program requires households to dispose of trash in marked blue bags that are available at local stores. The bags cost more than normal trash bags, and are aimed at generating revenue for the city and reducing waste hauling expenses.

The nine-question survey can be taken online, here.
