A salesperson just rang my doorbell. Is door-to-door peddling allowed in East Goshen?
Door-to-door solicitation is allowed, provided that the solicitor has a solicitation permit from the Township. The permit needs to be visibly worn by the solicitor. The permit will clearly state East Goshen Township and include a photograph of the solicitor. However, political groups, candidates and religious groups espousing a particular faith are generally exempt from the permit requirement due to constitutional protections.
The Township also has a “do not knock” registry, which prohibits solicitors—even those with a permit—from knocking on your door. Your address can added to the registry by completing the Peddling & Soliciting Do Not Call form which can be found on the Forms and Applications page.
