‘Do Not Knock’ Registry
Tired of Door-to-Door Solicitors?
Sign up for Roaming Shores Do Not Knock Registry
There has been a growing number of confusing and misleading energy offers affecting our community’s residents. To prevent this, as well as other for-profit solicitors from interrupting you at home, The Village of Roaming Shores has partnered with the Northeast Ohio Public Energy Council (NOPEC) to provide you with the Do Not Knock Registry.
How does the Do Not Knock Registry work? Residents can sign up for the Do Not Knock Registry online at blocktheknock.com or by sending in a postage-paid Do Not Knock Registry postcard. Postcards are available at the Village Hall. Once you’ve signed up, your address will be listed on the registry and you will receive a Do Not Knock window cling to post near your front door.
When a for-profit solicitor comes to The Village of Roaming Shores to sell door-to-door, they must first request a permit from the community. At that time, we will provide them with the Do Not Knock Registry listing addresses that they are not allowed to go to.
What happens if a solicitor still knocks on your door? Ask what organization they are with. Non-profit organizations like public schools or churches are not regulated by the same rules as for-profit solicitors. The Do Not Knock Registry does not apply to non-profit organizations.
If you feel the solicitor is in violation of the Do Not Knock Registry, contact Roaming Shores Police or the Village Hall to report them.
