The Shred-Fest is held four times a year, on the first Saturday in February, May, August, and November from 8:00 a.m. to noon, or until the shred truck is full. The Shred-Fest is free to all Victor Valley residents.  Bring up to four (4) 20-pound  boxes  of paper documents to shred for FREE.  No business materials.  Documents are shredded on site.  Please load your documents for shredding in the trunk of your car to make unloading as easy and efficient as possible.

Compost & Mulch Giveaway

There will be FREE mulch and compost at the MRF during the Shred-Fest events.  Burrtec attendants will assist with loading the compost/mulch.  Be sure to bring your own containers to hold the compost/mulch. Hard-sided containers such as buckets or trash containers are best as bags can break. The giveaway is for Victor Valley residents only — no businesses or commercial  vehicles.  Mulch and compost LIMIT is a combined 50 gallons total.
