South Bayside Industries Shoreway Environmental Center


SOUTH BAYSIDE INDUSTRIES is a division of Alameda County Industries and was unanimously selected by the South Bayside Waste Management Authority (SBWMA) Board of Directors to manage and operate the Shoreway Environmental Center starting January 1, 2024.
