From the Oil Tank Removal Specialists
Underground oil tanks, still common all over New Jersey for home heating purposes, can present a number of problems for homeowners. Because the tank is underground, a leak can be difficult to detect and, if left untreated, can get worse over time. This can create a significant health risk, as leaking oil can contaminate water and soil around your home. An underground oil tank can also be largely problematic for those looking to sell their homes. Even if the tank isn’t leaking, it’s mere presence can be enough to chase potential buyers away and lower the value of your home.

Using the latest approved technology, the tank is removed from the ground. We use proven processes to minimize disturbance to both the tank and the surrounding area. Once the tank is removed, it is placed on the ground nearby to await the township inspector. Following inspection, the tank is removed from the property and disposed of via state-approved methods.
The general excavation area for a 550 gallon tank is approximately 6' x 8'. After inspection, the excavation area is backfilled with certified clean fill material.
