By Staff Reports

(Victor Valley)–High Desert residents are invited to attend the Victor Valley Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) Shred-Fest and Mulch Giveaway on Saturday, February 2nd, from 8 a.m. to 12 noon.  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.

The Shred Fest will run from 8 a.m. until 12 noon, or whenever the truck fills up—whichever comes first.

During this event, Victor Valley residents can bring up to four bankers boxes of confidential paper documents to be shredded; pick up mulch and compost (50 gallon limit); drop off appliances, scrap metal, and TVs for free; visit the “Recycle Alley” drop-off center; and visit the public Buy Back center to redeem CA CRV, newspapers, and cardboard.

Following are more details about the activities:

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 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.
