The City of White Plains has established a Do-Not-Knock Registry for City of White Plains residents only who do not wish solicitors, peddlers, or hawkers to come to their homes for the purpose of selling. This includes anyone who would come to a door for the purpose of “...requesting, either directly or indirectly, money, credit, funds, contributions, personal property, or anything of value; taking or offering to take orders for goods, wares, and merchandise, except milk or newspapers, or for services to be performed in the future, or for selling, making, manufacturing; or repairing any articles or thing whatsoever for future delivery.”
This change applies only to those individuals selling as described above. It cannot prohibit the distribution of leaflets, pamphlets, or other literature such as commercial, political, or religious material distributed in a lawful manner.
