More than 150,000 reports made to Brussels app FixMyStreet in 2023

Over 150,000 problems with public space in Brussels were reported through the FixMyStreet app in 2023, the regional authority reported to Belga on Monday.

FixMyStreet allows citizens and professionals to report issues such as broken roads or pavements, fly-tipping, graffiti or abandoned vehicles by taking a photo and submitting it to the platform. 

According to, the number of reports in Brussels rose sharply in 2023. A total of 150,045 reports were made via the app and website in the past 12 months, a 55 per cent increase compared to 2022. In total, nearly 130,000 of these notifications were resolved during the year, 57 per cent more than a year earlier.

Requests related to public cleanliness were the most frequent (53 per cent), followed by reports about problems on the road (15 per cent) and street furniture (6 per cent).

Street refuse has long been an issue in Brussels. Last May, the city instated a new waste reform requiring residents to, among other things, sort their rubbish more thoroughly and adhere to stricter time slots to deposit their waste on the street. The reform, which is being continuously re-evaluated, has faced issues in terms of communication and excess rubbish bags on the street.
