Underground petrol tank removal combines the services of both cleaning and removing tanks. This example shows a number of relatively small underground petrol tanks (2000 & 4000 gallons) being cleaned internally, placed under gas free certification following a series of atmospheric monitoring tests, excavated and removed from site for disposal at a licensed waste facility. Once we have completed the petrol tank removal, soil samples can be arranged and a number of back fill options explored. Whilst the site detailed here was awaiting redevelopment, the decision was taken to backfill the excavations with clean imported hardcore to ensure the site was left safe.
