COVID-19 Precautions

Guidelines have been established and signage will be in place to reduce risk to the public and employees working during the Shred Fest at the Victor Valley MRF.   The guidelines follow various directives from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the California Department of Public Health (CDPH).

Attendees must remain in their vehicles until instructed by an attendant to unload vehicles.  All attendees must wear a face covering and follow social distancing protocols while at the Victor Valley MRF. Please do not visit this facility if you are sick or experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.


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.
