Come out this Saturday, September 20th for Coastal Cleanup Day at Torrance beach!


Volunteers are getting ready to roll up their sleeves and help clean up the local beaches in the upcoming Coastal Cleanup Day.

Considered one of the world’s largest single days of volunteering, Coastal Cleanup Day is expected to see about 15,000 people across Los Angeles County join other environmental groups and various organizations to fill bags with trash. Volunteers from all ages will scour Torrance Beach this Saturday. It is one of 50 clean-up sites Heal the Bay will oversee.

Since Heal the Bay began participating 25 years ago, representatives said more than 200,000 volunteers have shown up across Los Angeles County, collecting enough trash to fill two commercial airliners. Some of the most common items collected are cigarette butts, food wrappers and plastic bottles and caps.

You can join the event happening at Torrance beach on Saturday, Sept. 20 from 9 a.m. until noon. For more information, call (310)…
