State Orders Torrance Refinery To Clean Up Hazardous Waste

State regulators are ordering the Torrance Refining Company to remove or recycle large amounts of hazardous waste illegally stored in bins at the company's oil refinery in Torrance.  California Department of Toxic Substances Control Director Barbara Lee says the company illegally stockpiled hazardous wastes, which she says could harm public health and the environment.  The enforcement order comes after a joint inspection of the Torrance refinery with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
