Debris Removal

Most municipal codes require that properties be free of debris, on the interior and exterior of the property. This includes the removal of hazardous material. Some items, such as paint, tires, oil, chemicals, appliances and any potentially toxic materials, will require special disposal as these items are not allowed in roll off dumpsters. Fortunately, A City Suburban Services can handle all types of material, from those that can safely be disposed of in a landfill to those that require special handling.

Some of the most common debris removal services include:

  • Interior and exterior removal
  • Special handling of hazardous materials, including paint and oil

Code Violation Management

It’s extremely important to know the municipal codes affecting your property, because you want to stay in line with them or risk fines. At A City Suburban Services, we communicate with code enforcement offices so that we can help address and correct existing violations and mitigate code violations impacting your property.

Preparing for Sale or Conveyance

You want to get the most out of your property, which is why presenting a clean, clutter-free, safe, secure and near-turn key property is so important. Initial preservation is highly important in deterring any current damages from becoming widespread. If your property is going to be on the market over a period of time, ongoing maintenance services will keep it from dilapidating, and that’s something that A City Suburban Services is an expert at providing.

Other Services

No two properties are alike. Your needs in regard to property preservation will differ from the property owner’s down the street from you. Is graffiti an issue in your area? Is it rife with squatters? Let us help with the following services:
