Community Events

  • Annual Fishing Derby
    Junior anglers try their luck at our Annual Fishing Derby held at the Marysville Sportsmen’s Association on Kings Highway in Marysville Borough in early May. Fishing starts at 9:00 AM and the last fish are pulled out at 10:30 AM. The event is for children ages 3 to 14 years old. Fun for the whole family! See the Calendar of Events for details.
  • Annual Clean-Up
    Rye Township sponsors an annual bulk Cleanup for Township Residents each Spring, in early May. This service is only for Township residents as part of their trash collection service. The stub from the most recent trash bill is required as proof of residency or a PA driver’s license. A resident is permitted to bring ONE pick-up truck sized load to the rear of the Township Building for unloading into dumpsters. Four (4) car or truck tires per residence are also permitted. Refrigerators and freezers must have Freon removed. NO hazardous materials are permitted such as turpentine, paint thinners, paint strippers and removers, varnishes, paints, drain cleaners, swimming pool chemicals, weed killers, pesticides, fuel additives, gasoline, kerosene, or anti-freeze. We ask that you separate larger bulk items such as washers, dryers, water heaters, etc., and place them so that they are easily accessible to facilitate unloading of these items into a separate dumpster for scrap iron. See the Calendar of Events for details.
