Expert Help for Storage Tanks

Storage tanks that are located underground (UST) or above ground (AST) are often a source of concern for businesses and property owners. Corrosion, poor installation, and damage can lead to spills and environmental issues.

It’s why property owners and managers across the Mid-Atlantic region trust Elk Environmental with cleaning and removing their storage tanks. Thanks to our technical team’s experience and knowhow, your storage tank will be one less thing you have to worry about. We offer comprehensive storage tank management services for commercial, industrial, and select residential customers.

Removing an Above Ground or Underground Storage Tank

Elk Environmental Services’ technicians are certified to remove and dispose above ground tanks as well as excavate, remove, and dispose underground tanks. Our highly trained confined space entry (CSE) crews safely access and clean tanks with our vactor trucks to remove and properly dispose any residual tank bottom liquids/sludges before removal.

We fill out all necessary permits, notify PA One Call, remove the contents of the tank, dispose of the tank and waste, and submit tank closure documentation to PADEP. We carry necessary licenses and insurances and adhere to strict federal, state, and local regulations.

Elk is a PADEP certified AMR and UMR contractor and is listed in the PADEP Certified Storage Tank Companies registry.
