FREE Shoreway Environmental Center Tour Program for Schools and Public
Tours of the Shoreway Environmental Center in San Carlos offer students and the community an opportunity to learn firsthand what happens to their recyclables, yard trimmings, food scraps and garbage at a working Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) and Transfer Station.
RethinkWaste offers FREE tours and bus transportation for 3rd through 5th grade public and private school classes in the RethinkWaste Service Area*.
FREE tours for interested community groups are also offered. However, these groups will have to arrange their transportation to and from the center. Tours will also be provided to schools outside our service area (but in San Mateo County) if open tour times are available, but such schools will not be offered busing assistance. Tours are available for those in the 3rd grade and higher.
For the months of June and July, Public Open House Days will be held every Thursday. Starting in September, the tours will return to their regular schedule of being held the first and third Thursday of every month (except for August) to give the general public the opportunity to tour the Shoreway facility. There are no tours in August.
*RethinkWaste service area includes Atherton, Belmont, Burlingame, East Palo Alto, Foster City, Hillsborough, Menlo Park, Redwood City, San Carlos, San Mateo, parts of San Mateo County, and the West Bay Sanitary District.
