(Volunteers clean up trash)….Most of the trash was illegally dumped near the Salton Sea.
Christina Lange organizes a clean up of the area every year. Volunteers arrive from El Centro to Long Beach. Lange used to live in the Salton Sea area, but now resides in La Quinta. She organizes the clean up through posters, emails, flyers and word of mouth. Volunteers say there is finally positive news about the Salton Sea and it should be kept as clean as possible to encourage restoration projects. This year’s clean up was held Saturday. Lange said she was told by law enforcement that they did not have time to seek out those who illegally dump trash near the Salton Sea.
