Heating Oil Tank Decommissioning Services

Pump/Clean/Filling

Ideal for: closing in-place, underground tanks
Tacoma Tank Services pumps heating oil out of your underground storage tank and triple-rinses the tank. Structural foam, sand, or cement slurry is then put into the tank.  The fill and vent pipes are cut off or capped. Once complete, your property earns a Decommissioning Certificate.

Permanent Tank Removal

Ideal for: property owners who want their underground oil tank gone once and for all.
Our crews at Tacoma Tank Services show the greatest respect for your yard while pumping any remaining heating oil out of your tank. Trained crews carefully hand-dig or machine excavate to remove the underground storage tank before transporting it to an approved site, where it’s cut, cleaned and scrapped according to the highest environmental standards.

Once the oil tank is removed, our crews can backfill and compact the hole. After the hole is filled we can restore the area with ground cover, sod or both. Many customers prefer permanent tank removal because they never have to worry about their underground oil tank again. Once complete, your property earns a Decommissioning Certificate.

Tank Locating

Ideal for: homeowners who aren’t sure if – or where – an abandoned underground storage tank is buried on their property.
Tacoma Tank Services offers easy-to-understand oil tank location tips over the phone. If you need more help, we will bring our high-powered metal detecting or ground-penetrating radar equipment to attempt to locate an abandoned underground heating oil tank or home heating fuel lines on your property.
