Panama’s Urban and Household Waste Authority (La Autoridad de Aseo Urbano y Domiciliario) began an operation on Monday to clean up the streets of Avenida Central, Calidonia, Santa Ana, and Chorillo.

The operation had the objective to clean up Avenida Central for the upcoming Christmas season. The streets received a deep cleaning and a replacement of hundreds of garbage cans so that users can deposit trash where it belongs.

Authorities will begin monitoring the streets for people who litter and charging them an immediate fine of up to $100.

Experience Panama


I'm from Louisville, Kentucky and moved to Panama in 2011 to finish a degree in International Business. I enjoyed the hot tropical weather and the lifestyle on offer in Panama City so much that I decided to make it my permanent residence.
