Request a circular-free property decal

Service overview

If you don’t want circulars or other ads left on your property, you can register your property with the Department of Licenses and Inspections (L&I).

After you register, you will get a circular-free property decal. Once you put up the decal, you can report businesses that leave circulars on your property. L&I fines violators.


Property owners and their agents can get this decal.
