(Victorville)– High Desert residents are invited to attend the Victor Valley Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) Shred-Fest and Mulch Giveaway on Saturday, February 1st, 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.
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. Shredding will run from 8 a.m. to 12 noon, or whenever the truck fills up, whichever occurs first.
Free Mulch and Compost 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. While supplies last.
Free Drop-off of TVs, Computers, and Appliances: On Saturday, residents and businesses can bring TVs, computers, scrap metal, and appliances to drop-off for free at the RECYCLE ALLEY drop off area.
Free Reusable Grocery Bags: The first 100 visitors will receive a free reusable shopping bag.
In addition, residents can also visit the MRFs buy back center and redeem their separated CRV bottles and cans for cash.
