Union County Oil Tank Removal

Oil tanks installed over three decades ago in Westfield, Union or Plainfield could very well be leaking right under your feet! These older Union County oil tanks are made of bare steel fabrication, a material that makes the tank welcome corrosion. Corrosion can lead to a good possibility for spills and leaks from that tank and your property seeing a whole host of problems in polluted soil, air or groundwater. A tank removal, remediation (clean-up) or even abandonment (unable to remove the tank it is rendered safe and filled) can take time and cost money.

We hired Steve Rich Environmental Contractors to remove an above ground oil tank after we converted from an old oil boiler to a forced air system in our property in Montclair, NJ. They did a fantastic job not only with the removal process but also coordinating with the local township inspector to ensure the permit was closed. Their pricing is very competitive compared other companies. If you are looking for a professional and efficient tank removal company, I highly recommend Steve Rich Environmental Contractors.

Felix and his team (Lisa, Beth, Glenn, Danny and Perry) are fantastic. The oil tank removal process can certainly be quite complex. The folks at Steve Rich made it rather seamless. Everyone there is very responsive and accurate and quite pleasant to speak to. Highly recommend Felix and his team for oil tank removals.
Holly Tracy
We're very happy we chose Steve Rich Environmental Contractors to remove our above-ground oil tank. The office team was responsive, timely, thorough and friendly, giving us all the information and documents we needed to initiate the job. The team who came to remove our tank was professional, informative, and just plain great! The cost of the tank removal was more than competitive, and we are highly satisfied on all levels -- including professionalism, timeliness, and value. We highly recommend this company! We couldn't have had a better experience!

Over the holidays, everyone was busy trying to get all the work done before the break. I called SREC, and they accommodated their schedule and were able to fit us in right on time before our inspection deadline. Felix was great to deal with. Glenn followed up and was on point with excellent communication. I highly recommend them. ???? A+

The sales persons were very patient in explaining the whole process with me and were very pleasant no matter how many times I called to clarify something. Also the workers taking the tank out and filling in the hole were also very pleasant, kind and professional in their duties.

You hear all kinds of stories about people being taken advantage of when it comes to oil tank removal. When speaking with Felix Santana of Steve Rich Environmental, you will get an honest and informed estimate. Yes, a lot cannot be known until the tank is out of the ground and inspected, but Felix will take you through the possible outcomes and possible costs to the best of his ability. He really knows his stull. We paid the quoted price for the tank removal and then we paid an additional cost to dispose of the foam that was used to decommission the tank. Thankfully we had no leaking. Beth, Glen and Lisa in the office are also very professional and responsive. Oil tank removal can be an expensive endeavor, but with Steve Rich you won't be taken advantage of, IMHO.

Felix and his crew (Oscar and Ryan) were absolutely amazing! I am so glad they were recommended to me, I couldn't be any happier. Felix goes above and beyond to be available to answer any and all questions and put your mind at ease. The whole process was smooth and they were in and out, clean professional, never annoyed with the customers, kids, neighbors looking on as they worked to remove the tank and asking all the questions. Very friendly, very knowledgeable. These are your guys! If you need an oil tank removed, I highly recommend.
