Palos Verdes HS cleans Torrance Beach

 

On February 17th, the PVHS Chapter of Heal the Bay went out to clean up Torrance Beach. It was a clear day, and we had a great turn-out. We started around 10:00, and the event ran for about two hours. The groups, dispatched in pairs and trios, found a lot of small plastic pieces and cigarette buds. Groups also found interesting objects, including diapers, syringes, and band aids. After about two hours of trash pick-up, we were able to collect about 500 pieces of Styrofoam and 230 pieces of plastic, along with other large numbers of different trash. Most of the trash was found along the bike paths, where many people walk, run, and bike daily.
