To help prevent unwanted door-to-door solicitors, Brecksville has partnered with NOPEC to provide a Do Not Knock Registry.
Residents can register online at www.blocktheknock.com or by calling NOPEC’s customer service number at 855-667-3201. Their addresses will be listed on the registry, and they will receive a Do Not Knock window cling to display near their front doors at no cost.
When for-profit solicitors come to Brecksville, they must request a permit from the city at the police department. They are then provided with the registry of addresses that they must avoid.
If solicitors still come to the doors of those who have signed up for the program, residents should ask which organization they represent. Nonprofit groups such as the Girl Scouts or churches are not regulated by the same rules that for-profit solicitors must follow. The Do Not Knock Registry does not apply to these non-profit groups.
