Domestic Heating Oil Tanks
DP Fuel Tank Services can remove any size of metal or plastic domestic heating oil tanks from domestic premises, with the minimum of fuss or disruption.
Many people are now moving their domestic heating systems away from oil to more economical and environmentally friendly fuel sources. Additionally, oil fired central heating is losing popularity because of the increasing legal burdens.
Once a tank becomes redundant in this way, removing it, by cleaning and recycling it, eliminates a safety hazard and allows the re-use of the tank room or the land on which the tank stood.
Our skill in hot and cold cutting fuel tanks has helped us clean and extract redundant central heating system tanks from some very tight places with restricted access – with minimum disruption. We have carried out this task in a huge variety of buildings, including Buckingham Palace, main Post Offices, top London hotels and private houses.
We Recycle All Metal Oil Tanks
Unlike many companies, we recycle all plastic as well as metal tanks. The difficulty with plastic tanks is that they are not constructed from a simple recyclable plastic; they are fire retardant polypropylene with glass reinforcing, which, until now, was not economically recyclable.
DP FTS has now found a recycling facility that shreds the tanks and makes them into such thing as flower pots and water butts. To keep the CO2 produced by transporting the tanks to a minimum, we store them in a compound until there are enough for a full load.
Often an outdoor tank is set off the ground by a small ‘wall’ called a pier. Once you have had your tank removed by us, we then offer a service to remove both brick and concrete piers, with a full clean up after to ensure you are left with no mess and full satisfaction.
