New Jersey Oil Tank Removal

ERC Environmental, LLC. The market leader in New Jersey oil tank removal

Many homes and businesses are sold with decommissioned oil tanks buried on the property. When you face the task of an oil tank removal, you can be bombarded with added services, delays and costs that exponentially increase without warning.

When our New Jersey oil tank removal specialists are hired for a job we are up-front in our quotes and offer customers a flate rate fee for the entire process from beginning to end. We start by procuring all required permits from the town. Then we’ll determine the exact location and decide which equipment is the best option for the job. Using a backhoe, our crew of 2-3 people can have the tank removed in a matter of hours.

We expose, clean and remove the tank and work with town inspectors to determine if there is any soil contamination. Once given the all-clear on the tank inspection, we fill in the hole.

  • Anticipate all costs from the start.

  • Makes it easier to close on the property.

  • No surprises.

  • All permits included.

  • Get an estimate within hours.



Let ERC handle all your New Jersey oil tank needs from inspection, soil testing, tank removal and replacement, site remediation and more. Contact us today to learn more about our flat rate services.
If your old tank did leak and soil contamination was discovered by town inspectors, our specialists can work to get you cleaned up and an NFA letter issued from the NJDEP.

We take on all of the steps to report all levels of oil spillage to your municipality and to the state. We help determine if the water table has been contaminated as well. If this is the case, we contact your insurance company for you to see if this is covered in your policy and to what levels.

We remove all contaminated soil and get town inspectors to come back to document that your property meets all local and state mandates. Then we fill in the hole with clean soil and work to restore the rest of your property.

Once an oil tank leaks, it cannot be fixed, but needs to be replaced. We can help you in this entire process, from helping you to choose the best kind of tank for your needs and locating the right spot on your property to ensure continued service with the least amount of interruption possible.

Most property owners choose to locate new oil tanks in their basement, garage or an outdoor area. We will assess your options and help you choose which location best suits your needs. We also carefully fit your new oil tank before removing the old, working one to ensure no interruption in heat or hot water.

Our experts can guide you in selecting which of the new modern options is right for you. These options can include plastic tanks which never rust, double-walled tanks that prevent leaks, enclosures to protect outdoor tanks from weather, and even crash barriers if your tank is located in a garage or parking area.
In addition to our oil tank services, we also install, replace, and service septic tanks. Many areas in New Jersey have only septic service instead of city water and sewer access, so it is important to keep these tanks and pipes in good condition to prevent deterioration, overflow or leakage.

At ERC Environmental, we offer expert advice and service in all aspects of septic tank ownership and maintenance. For new properties, we can install brand new septic systems that meet the highest standards for environmental safety and longevity. We also complete septic repairs whether to septic tanks or pipes. If septic is no longer needed, we can even do complete removal of septic systems, including bringing your property back to its original state.

One of the biggest concerns of property owners who need oil or septic services is what their property will look like after the work is finished. At ERC, we take the time to gently remove shrubs and bushes so we can replace them after our work is complete. We refill and regrade soil, and replant all possible shrubs and grass, even sodding where needed. If driveway construction was needed, we will subcontract pavement specialists to return your property to its original state.

ERC Environmental provides hassle free residential heating conversion. From the free removal of old oil tank to installation of natural gas system, you can rely on us for an easy process that will have you heating your home more efficiently in no time.

ERC Environmental offers services for both commercial and residential applications involving the piles for stabilization to repair foundations, soil remediation and multiple other applications.

ERC Environmental Inc. did an amazing job removing the underground oil tank at the property I was going to purchase. Both Drew and Alex did a great job and were very knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend hiring ERC for any underground oil tank removal or testing.
