25/12/2012 - An estimated 50 percent of the employees scheduled to work today for garbage agency AAUD failed to show up, seriously impacting efforts to clear waste from the streets caused by the holiday festivities.
AAUD Administrator Enrique Ho Fernández said that despite the setback, the agency was able to clear garbage out of key areas. He said that Plaza 5 de Mayo, Calidonia, Parque Lefevre and Río Abajo are "fairly clean."
He acknowledged that there are serious problems in places like El Chorrillo and Barraza.
"Much of the work will have to be done tomorrow," Ho Fernández said.
