Ladies and Gentlemen,
It has been brought to our attention that there have been persons soliciting pine straw door to door in the East Cobb area. We have received a few calls and emails since the beginning of spring. They may pressure you into a deal that may leave you overpaying for services. We wanted to remind everyone that Cobb County requires a badge for door to door solicitation. You may call 911 for illegal solicitation and an officer will respond accordingly. I would encourage you to do your homework and hire your own contractor for pine straw or any other landscaping or contracting needs you may have.
The county permits door-to-door solicitations only if the person has registered with the county’s business license office. A registration badge must be worn by solicitors and will include their name, address, organization and a photograph. Solicitation without a registration badge is prohibited. Police will respond to reports of unregistered solicitors.
For more information visit the Cobb County Code Enforcement website.
Remain safe and vigilant!
Sgt Tim Nelson
