Tank removal services

Any Storage tank that has been used to store hazardous materials and chemicals are themselves classed as hazardous. Until they have been cleaned and all residue removed from the inside of the tanks.

Tanks that require disposal must be cleaned/purged and certified with a Gas Free Certificate. Only then can they be removed from the site. They cannot be recycled without this certificate or declaration.

Bio Clean Jetting will cleanse and remove your tank from your any site throughout the U.K. Alternatively, we offer a tank decommissioning process and have the capability to decommission your storage tanks via foam fill. This operation makes the tank totally safe and a certificate is provided.

We Offer bespoke tank removal services to our customers from the early planning stages, right through to the project’s completion. A detailed health and safety plan, including risk assessment and method statement, is provided before any works are carried out after our initial site visit.

BCJ provide a complete in-house service from industrial tank cleaning to providing waste disposal through to the tank removal and safe disposal of your redundant tanks.

Great care and precision must be taken when decommissioning and removing tanks where the risk of pollution and even explosion can be incredibly high. Bio clean jetting have specialist teams with many years’ experience of industrial tank removal, disposal and decommissioning works. Whether your tank is above ground or below we have the answers.

Domestic Tank Removal

Our domestic tank removals have been designed to provide our clients with a stress-free disposal of a large and potentially hazardous household item.

We have expertly trained staff and state of the art equipment that enables us to safely clean, dispose of the stored chemical and then remove your domestic oil tank – no matter where it is stored – below or above ground.

We have a range of options available for safe disposal. Where we can, we will remove a domestic tank in one piece. However, if excavation is needed or access to the tank is restricted, we can employ sophisticated cutting techniques.

Here, we cut up the storage tank and remove it in pieces.

We ensure all health and safety laws are strictly adhered to and we project plan and run the entire process from start to finish.

Commercial Tank Removal

Removal of commercial tanks are no simple affair, but we’re definitely up to the task. We have the capacity to handle the removal of commercial oil and fuel tanks of various dimensions, regardless of their location and setting.

The fact that urban landscapes present an ever-changing field of operation has prompted us to develop innovative, world-class techniques of carrying out our business over many years of experience. Safety and efficiency are our guiding principles, and these are what our teams of experienced professionals strive to implement in whatever project they are commissioned on.

The scope of variation in tank sizes can be extremely vast, depending on their application and the scale of the operations they support. A day’s work might involve anything ranging from the removal of a 500 gallon heating arrangement located in the rear-court of a local Birmingham garage to a mammoth 500,000 diesel affair in an industrial yard.

Different cases often call for their own custom-fitted solutions, and we pride ourselves on our adaptability in this regard. Relatively small tanks located in easily accessible above-ground locations can be dismantled and relocated within a single working day. Large operations may call for more involvement in their planning, a task that our experts are superb at handling. Any preliminary cleaning, transportation, or permit seeking required will be ably handled by our well-developed logistics chain and field staff, leaving your operation free to carry on with your business without skipping a beat.

Whatever the scenario, our impeccable safety protocols coupled with our expertise work in tandem to ensure the safest, fastest, most environmentally-friendly removal operation current technology makes possible.

Industrial and commercial fields of operation, including such logistically challenging places as basements, overhead lofts and such are never too much of an obstacle for the excellent teams of professionals standing ready to engage them.

Underground tank removal

No matter where your underground fuel tank is situated, we have the knowledge and experience to ensure a smooth procedure is in place. If excavation is required, we work closely with a number of plant operators.

Even if a building is situated directly above where your tank is located, we have specialist equipment and technical ability in order to cut the tank and remove it in pieces – this will also reduce the scope of the excavation that may be required.

Safety is paramount with an underground removal. The tank has to be cleaned, ensuring the vessel is oil and gas free. At this point, the removal process begins.

If we need to excavate your underground tank, we can arrange for machines and operatives to do so.

Solid filling tanks | Concrete and foam

If you have land or premises that currently have underground tanks that are unused and redundant and you need to make them safe but without the cost implications of removal, we can solid fill them with concrete or foam.

We fill the redundant tanks with either concrete slurry or a type of solid foam. Once the tanks are filled and safe, we will either completely cove them.

If you want to build anything that requires a foundation, the tanks will physically need to be removed.

Solid filled tank removal

For convenience, time and money, many land owners will have opted for a solid filled service. This means that their tanks weren’t excavated or physically removed.

Their underground fuel storage tanks, were instead left in pace and filled with a solid foam or concrete slurry. This made them 100% safe.

However, when current or future land owners wish to develop on the land, for example: to construct buildings, properties or homes etc – anything that requires foundations, the tanks will require excavating and removing.

Our solid filled tank removal service is the service, you require.

I would highly recommend this company. They removed a rusty oil tank from my garden, including cutting it up as the access route wasn't big enough to take it out in one piece. Communication from the first time I contacted them until after the job was complete was clear and prompt. They were very flexible with booking a date, to fit in with work being done by other companies, and were more than fair with the price in this regard. The actual job on site was done quickly and to an excellent standard, and they arrived on time and completed the work quickly. Essentially, they did exactly what they said they would when they said they'd do it, for a fair price. What more can you ask?
