Solterra, the trash contractor for Gloucester City, bypassed the trash at several homes in Riverview Heights on Thursday. Alex Tedesco, Supt. of the Public Works Department, was notified and within an hour city workers came out and took the trash away. 

GLOUCESTER CITY, NJ (February 4, 2021)(CNBNews)--For one reason or another Gloucester City's Trash Contractor, Solterra went through the Riverview Heights section of the city picking up the trash from some homes and bypassing others. For example, on North Stinson, they left the trash at  3 and 4  N. Stinson and 5 E. Thompson but they took the trash from 2 and 6 N. Stinson. Alex Tedesco, Superintendent of the Public Works Department said anyone whose trash wasn't picked up to leave it in front of their homes and someone will get it either today or on Friday. 

Shortly after speaking with Tedesco, city workers came by and the trash was removed. Last month a resident in the South Stinson Avenue neighborhood had a similar problem with Solterra.
