Recycle at RBNC

What do we recycle at River Bend Nature Center?

River Bend Nature Center has a green organic bin located in the back of the facility for public use. River Bend pays a monthly rental fee for these bins. If you use this bin regularly please consider making a tax-deductible donation. Thank you for your support! Contribute here.

Sadly IESI has removed their Orange Bins from the Wichita Falls area due to financial reasons, so we can no longer receive your recyclables. However, you can recycle glass, newspaper, aluminum, and #1 & #2 plastics right down the hill at the Sanitation Department (200 Sunset). For more information please visit
