As more rain is expected this week across Southern California, don’t forget the City is offering free sandbags.

The Street Maintenance Department at the City Yard is providing free sand bags for Torrance residents living in single-family homes and duplexes only. The City Yard is giving out a maximum of 25 filled sandbags per resident. After hours, Torrance residents can call the Torrance Fire Department at (310) 781-7042 to find the closest fire station offering free sandbags.

The City Yard is located at 20500 Madrona Avenue. Residents should call Public Works at (310) 781-6900 before coming to the City Yard to make sure a crew is available to help load the sandbags into a truck or car. Also, be sure to bring some form of ID (driver’s license) to show residency within the City of Torrance.
