Schedule A Shoreway Tour

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.

Special Notice for Tours Occurring Fall 2019 through Summer 2020

We are always looking for ways to improve Shoreway Environmental Center’s 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!

The safety of our community members is our top priority. To ensure public safety and accommodate construction schedules and severely restricted parking capacity at the facilities, public tours will not be available Fall 2019 through Summer 2020.

We are still able to accommodate schoolbusiness and organization groups that arrive via bus. Due to space limitations, we do not have space for multiple vehicles to park on site. 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.
