What's Happening in North Smithfield













Message from Town Administrator

Gary Ezovski



 North Smithfield was proudly represented by John Wojcik (third row on the left) at the state house recently when Rhode Island was recognized by the National Weather Service as the first state to have every community established as storm ready as advocated by the NWS.  This achievement recognizes once again the cooperative working relationship between our volunteers and our full time personnel.  Great things happen when we work together!  Congratulations and thanks John, Peter Branconnier, and all who are North Smithfield's Emergency Management Agency for making us "Storm Ready," and for all your other efforts to maintain the safety net we need for so many disaster possibilities. 



 Town Hall & Town Annex offices will be closed on Monday, February 19th in observance of Presidents' Day.  This IS NOT a trash holiday.  Regular collections will take place.  



North Smithfield Recycling -- We Now Have an App for That.


In an effort to put trash & recycling collection schedules at your fingertips, North Smithfield Recycling has paired with Recycle Coach to offer a free web and mobile app easily added to smartphones or tablets.  Now residents can see the Recycle Department calendar, details of our collection programs, and learn how to become a better recycler quickly and easily anytime they want this information.


The calendar feature displays trash collection days for your specific address and will even update for trash holiday weeks.  This feature will also display our Recycle Center hours, our curbside yard waste season, white goods Saturday dates, and Eco-Depot and other events.  


And to make things even easier, you can have Recycle Coach send you reminders.   Get an email or text message for upcoming events or special collections.  It couldn't be simpler.


"We hope with easy information and reminders sent to your phone or directly through emails, residents will understand all the recycling programs we offer and take advantage of them.  More recycling participation means more recycling in NS, and less trash being landfilled from our community.  It's a win all around," explains Donna Kaehler, recycling coordinator. 

The Recycle Coach app is free to download and available from ITunes Store and Google Play. Click here for the web app that is linked on the Town of North Smithfield website. For more information, call 767-2200 x345.
