Description: High Desert residents are invited to attend the Shred Fest and Mulch Giveaway at the Victor Valley Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) 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 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.

Free Drop-off of TVs, Computers, and Appliances: Area 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 300 visitors will receive a free reusable shopping bag. Residents can also visit the MRFs buy back center and redeem CRV bottles and cans for cash.

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.

Motor Oil

Why Recycle Used Oil?

Did you know that used motor oil never wears out? It just gets dirty and can be recycled, cleaned, and used again. Recycling used motor oil conserves a natural resource (oil) and is good for the environment too! Motor oil poured onto the ground or into storm drains, or tossed into trash cans (even in a sealed container) can contaminate and pollute the soil, groundwater, streams, and rivers. Recycling your used motor oil reduces this pollution threat. When you take your used oil to a certified center for recycling, you are protecting the environment, conserving a valuable resource, and getting paid for it. That’s a winning combination!

About the Certified Centers

You can recycle used motor oil at any Certified Center. Certified Used Oil Collection Centers will take used motor oil from the public and will pay you 40¢ a gallon. Most centers will take up to 5 gallons at a time.

What About Contaminated Oil?

Certified center managers will not accept used motor oil that has been contaminated with other fluids such as antifreeze, solvents, gasoline, or water. So please, don’t mix your used oil with anything. However, if your used oil accidentally gets contaminated, your certified center manager can tell you where to take it for proper disposal.

Drop Off Locations

Take your oil to a San Bernardino County Household Hazardous Waste Collection site. For a location nearest you, contact 1-800-OILY CAT (645-9228).
