Buried oil tanks are raising increasing environmental safety, legal and economic concerns for home owners and home buyers.

There is no time like the present to remove your Underground Storage Tank (UST).

GWS will prepare and submit the necessary local permits and obtain the utility mark-outs for the tank removal. We will pump out and dispose of all liquids properly, cut and clean the tank, then remove and dispose of the tank. All necessary inspections will be arranged through your municipality. If requested, GWS will store your tank for an insurance investigation.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):

Question:
What should I do if I have a heating oil tank in my yard?
Answer
Call GWS.  We can remove it, usually within in one day onsite, taking care to make sure your property is disturbed as little as possible.

Question:
I don’t have tank insurance, how can I get the tank out without spending a lot of money?
Answer: 
Almost all of the oil tanks removed by GWS are done at very little cost to the homeowner.  GWS works with the New Jersey Petroleum Underground Storage Tank Fund to help pay for many of the oil tank removals we perform.

Question:
My oil tank is under 10 years old, should I wait to sell my house before removing the oil tank or do it now?
Answer: 
We strongly recommend you remove the tank now.  Many tanks still leak even though they were installed less than 10 years ago.  Depending on soil conditions and the presence of water, your tank may be leaking and you won’t detect it until it is too late.

Question: 
What will happen if my tank leaked?
Answer:  
GWS will remove the tank and work with you through the process to get your property back to the way it was.  We have expertise in navigating the grant process and in dealing with your insurance company and have many years experience in helping our customers completely restore their property.

Question: 
Why should I use GWS Environmental Contractors to remove my tank over other companies?
Answer: 
Unlike many other “tank removal companies” GWS Environmental Contractors Inc. is a family owned and operated business that has been operating for over 35 years in New Jersey.  We take the time to work with you through the process of removing your oil tank from start to finish.  We explain the process in layman's terms and work very hard to make sure you are satisfied.  Our teams are  professional, courteous and quick, so your experience will be as pleasant as possible.
