March 11, 2020 Special Notice
Due to increasing concerns regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19) and recently issued directives from San Mateo County Health, the Shoreway Tour Program is suspended through April 2020. The health and safety of our visitors is our top priority and postponing tours is a precautionary measure to help prevent the possible spread of the virus.
RethinkWaste Staff is closely following the progress of this rapidly changing situation and will let everyone know whether or not tours can continue for May or June 2020. Please check back to our website or our social media channels for updates. These actions are in line with many cities and school districts in our RethinkWaste service area and we will continue to look to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and San Mateo County Health as our primary source of information and guidance.
Thank you for your interest in touring the Shoreway Environmental Center! We are always looking for ways to improve our equipment and processes, and have just begun the installation of new, updated machinery. While exciting, this project involves major construction, major time commitments and major public safety concerns!
We are still able to accommodate business and organization groups that arrive via bus or single, large vehicle. Due to space limitations, we do not have space for multiple vehicles to park and tour access to certain areas of the facilities may also be affected by construction activity.
We express our sincerest apologies for the inconvenience! If you have questions or inquiries about qualifications for bus sponsorship, please contact us.
Businesses and community groups with a minimum of 10 people who are able to arrive via bus are invited to tour the Shoreway Environmental Center. This opportunity allows employers, employees, and community groups to see what happens to recyclables, yard trimmings, food scraps and garbage once they are collected.
Tours take place Monday through Friday as scheduling allows and last approximately one hour. Tours are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis. Visitors should plan on arriving 10 minutes prior to the start of the tour time. Click here to view our tour requirements prior to your arrival.
