Free Shred-Fest: High Desert residents can bring up to four bankers boxes of confidential paper documents to be shredded for free.

Free Mulch and Compost Giveaway: Area residents can pick up free mulch during the event. 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.

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.
