Please be aware that under the U.S. Constitution, the Township cannot prohibit door-to-door solicitation but we can and do attempt to regulate such activity. The Township’s solicitation Ordinance, previously upheld by federal court, requires a permit from the Township Clerk (which the solicitor must carry) and restricts solicitation hours from 9:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. any day. Homeowners not wanting solicitors may post a sticker or notice on their door, “Private Property – NO SOLICITORS.” Stickers are available at most hardware stores.
You may have your phone number listed on the national “Do Not Call” registry that will render the line off-limits to telemarketers. Simply call 888-382-1222 or register online. Violators face fines up to $11,000.00.
