(Victorville)–High Desert residents are invited to attend the final Shred-Fest and Mulch Giveaway for 2011 on Saturday, November 5th, from 8 a.m. to 12 noon at the Victor Valley Materials Recovery Facility (MRF). The Victor Valley MRF is located at 17000 Abbey Lane, in Victorville, just off of Stoddard Wells Road—right on the way to the County landfill. All activities are FREE and open to all residents of the High Desert.
Free Shred-Fest: High Desert residents can bring up to four bankers boxes of confidential paper documents to be shredded for free. All Purpose Document Destruction will have a truck on site, so residents can watch their documents get shredded. The free shredding is for paper documents from residents only. No business materials.
Free Mulch Giveaway: Area residents can also pick up free mulch on Saturday at the MRF. This is a “self-serve” giveaway, so residents will need to bring their own shovels and containers to load the mulch into. Limit 50 gallons per resident.
Free Drop-off of TVs, Computers, Scrap Metal, E-Waste, and Appliances: On Saturday, residents can bring TVs, computers, scrap metal, and appliances to drop-off for free.
“Recycle Alley” Drop Off Center: The MRF’s “Recycle Alley” drop off area will be open. Residents and businesses can drop off mixed papers, glass bottles and jars, cardboard, all types of scrap metal, plastic bags, tin/aluminum cans, and all sorts of plastics.
Buy Back Center: The Victor Valley MRF’s buy back center will be open. Materials for buy back include CRV bottles and cans, newspapers, and cardboard.
Backyard Composting Bins For Sale: Backyard composting bins will be available for sale. City of Victorville Recycling Program staff will be available to hand out information on backyard composting, grass mulching, and the Cash For Grass program.
The Victor Valley MRF serves as the processing center for recyclables from Apple Valley and Victorville’s curbside and commercial/business recycling programs. The MRF is also a buy back and drop-off recycling center open to the public and businesses. It is regularly open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 12 noon.
