No Knock Registry
Residents who no longer wish to receive door-to-door visits from vendors are invited to sign up for Green Township's newly created "No Knock” Registry. The Registry permits all residents to register with the Township Clerk indicating that they do not want peddlers, solicitors or canvassers to approach their homes and/or seek contact with the occupants of the registered home. Registration can be completed through a form made available in the Township Clerk's office or on the link below.
Once registered, the Clerk's Office will provide, free of charge, a self-adhering sticker. Please note that smaller stickers (4" x 5") are now available. Please note preference of size on the application form (8 1/2" x 11" or 4" x 5").
The Clerk's Office will maintain the "No Knock" List. It shall be unlawful for any peddler to approach and/or seek personal contact with the occupants thereof if that residence is registered on the “No Knock" List. Anyone violating this subsection shall be subject to a fine of not less than fifty ($50) dollars nor more than one hundred ($100) dollars for each violation. The Registry will be provided to any licensee who is issued a license to conduct door to door sales pursuant to Green Township Code.
