Oil Tank Removal

As complex as it seems (and is!) for a property owner, underground oil tank removal and/ or installation will be performed by Lombardo Environmental professionals within three to four hours after which your lawn will be left environmentally sound and clean.


As our customers say, it’s hard to believe that such heavy equipment had been taken to the site and somewhat six by eight foot area had been excavated to remove and install a 550 gallon (or bigger!) heating oil tank. The size of the excavation area may vary depending on the size of the fuel oil tank. However, regardless of the size of the job done, in only a few hours, the site will appear as clean as if it had never been excavated for the underground oil tank removal and/ or installation. Your comprehensive tank closure report will be submitted to you within two weeks and include copies of all certifications as well as disposal tickets.

Tank Abandonment

Private and commercial property owners, suspecting or realizing a problem with an underground heating oil tank often opt to discontinue using the underground fuel tank as their heating source. In such cases, it is critical to detect the old tank problem and address it accordingly with the proper oil tank abandonment.


Lombardo Environmental offers traditional methods of abandonment such as filling your tank with sand or gravel as well as the latest in abandonment technology – environmentally safe Tank Foam. Foam is quickly becoming the most practical underground storage tank (UST) fill material in the industry. It’s lightweight (only 110 lbs. per 1,000 gal tank) which makes the tank easy to remove, if necessary, in the future. Tank foam is environmentally “green” and accepted by the NJ Department of Environmental Protection and most towns and cities in the tri-state area.


Lombardo Environmental is the premier Tank Foam Specialist in the area. Call Lombardo for all your underground storage tank (UST) abandonment needs, you’ll be glad you did. No tank is too small or too large.

Oil Tank Sweep

If you one of the many people interested in purchasing a piece of property, you must be cautious in regards to underground storage tanks for the heating needs. Some of the many questions you should be asking yourself should include:


  • Does the property currently have an underground storage tank?
  • Has it ever had an underground storage tank?
  • If so, what is the condition of the tank?
  • Had it ever been abandoned?
  • Was it abandoned properly?
  • Even though the homeowner, the realtor and the lawyer all advise you not to worry, could you afford to inherit someone else’s headache?
  • Are you still having doubts after all the disclosures?
