In order to lawfully engage in door-to-door solicitation in falls township, companies need to have a permit issued by the township. An individual engaged in door-to-door solicitation must carry and display their township issued permit at all times and may only do so Monday-Saturday from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm. Solicitors are not permitted to knock on the doors of homes displaying a “no solicitation” sign or any address which is registered on the “no solicitation registry.” If a solicitor knocks on your door, ask them to see their falls township issued permit. If they do not have a permit, or if you have a sign displayed or are on the “no solicitation registry” call the falls township police department at 215-328-8519 and report it. Please obtain as much information as possible (name/description of solicitor, company name, etc.) to help the police identify and issue citations to individuals in violation of this ordinance.
In 2014, the board of supervisors passed an ordinance that allows residents to add their name to a no solicitation registry. This list is then distributed to anyone that applies for a solicitation permit with instructions not to solicit at any of the addresses on the list. To be placed on this list, please use the link below to register your information.
Please note that this ordinance does not apply to religious and political activity.
For more information on what types of activities are subject to the ordinance and how the registry works, please use the link below to view the ordinance, or contact the Township with questions.
As solicitation permits come in and are approved, a list of the permits that are issued will be shown below. This list will be updated accordingly.
