Smithfield Launches New Citizen Reporting Tool Powered by SeeClickFix

Today, the Town of Smithfield has partnered with SeeClickFix to announce a new platform that will allow citizens to report quality-of-life issues and request town services.

With the free SeeClickFix mobile app and web tools, Smithfield citizens will now be able to provide town staff with pictures, videos, specific descriptions, and more valuable information needed to get the job done efficiently. In addition, the SeeClickFix platform provides Smithfield officials with a centralized issue management system to manage issues from creation to resolution — engaging citizens throughout the process.

This partnership not only allows Smithfield citizens to report problems, but also to view and comment on problems submitted by their neighbors. Citizens can even create their own “watch areas” to receive notifications about all the issues reported in their community, enabling them to follow the progress of all service requests — not just the ones they report.

The SeeClickFix mobile app is available for download on Android and iPhone. In addition to the mobile apps, citizens can send reports to seeclickfix.com.

Who's the New company?

Did the New company pick up this past Monday, because my Trash Bin is cracked...they just threw it down. It was halfway in the roadway on it's side😡

Thank you

Is the shredding event still on for this Saturday?

John McLaren

Not sure about other neighborhoods but they were flying around mine. Not safe at all.

A new company that didn't empty my regular trash but did empty the recycling.

I just want to mention that the new company the last couple weeks seems as if they are rushing around, and not caring about residents trash bins. They knock one over as they are trying to pick up the other, when they place the barrel back down they almost always tip or end up in the street vs where they originally were. I’m grateful my trash is being picked up, but I’m not satisfied with this new company at the moment. On a positive note, during their “rushing around” they knocked over one of my barrels, spilling everything out, and did pick it all up in-person and re-dump it in the truck. But had they not been so quick and rushing in the first place perhaps it never would have happened.

I agree, they came flying down my dead end street right on top of each other like they were racing. Good thing it was early enough that the neighborhood kids weren’t in the cul-de-sac.
