Victor Valley MRF Recycling Center -
"Recycle Alley" Drop-off Area

Recycle Alley small

The Victor Valley Materials Recovery Facility (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.

The MRF is located on Abbey Lane, just off of Stoddard Wells Road—on the way to the County’s Victorville Landfill.

The MRF accepts TVs, computers, corrugated cardboard, and scrap metal, as well as mixed paper, bottles and cans. By recycling these items at the MRF, residents reduce the amount of trash going to the landfill. This helps reduce landfill disposal costs.

The MRF is open Monday - Friday 8 am to 4 pm and Saturday 8 am to Noon.
