70% of Malden residents want options to the blue trash bags. The Mayor promised to change the blue trash bag system if elected. He broke that promise.
These costly bags are flimsy and inconvenient to buy.
John has proposed to offer a city-approved trash barrel alternative to using blue bags. John will renegotiate the waste management contract to allow residents to mix all recycling without being rejected. This is a basic city service where residents deserve a say.
