Cottage Grove requires door-to-door sales people to be licensed or registered, which includes background checks of both businesses and individuals.

While most solicitors follow the rules, occasionally a group or individual does not. If you encounter a solicitor that conducts business in a way that violates the City's code or they are not licensed, please contact the Cottage Grove Police Department at 651-439-9381 or 911.
Residents can ban door-to-door sales on your property by posting a “No Peddlers or Solicitors” sign.
