Hundreds of toilets, tires and other garbage are being removed from a reef off the coast of Malibu, it was reported this week.
The trash was found about 1 1/2 miles east of Point Dume, and at some points, up to 80 feet deep. The area is home to fish, lobsters and sea urchins, the Discovery Channel reported:
The toilets that are being pulled from the sea are being unloaded in Marina Del Rey where they'll be lifted from a boat to the dock by winch for transport to a landfill.

About 300 tires were also discovered at the site. The person responsible for the trash has yet to be identified.
