Oil Tank Replacement Program 

New Jersey Residents:
Like any home appliance, an oil tank can last for many years. But just like any home appliance, there comes a time when you need to replace old and outdated equipment with something new and technologically advanced. And now is a great time to replace your old tank because the State of New Jersey has expanded eligibility for the Petroleum Underground Storage Tank Fund. 

The life expectancies of underground oil tanks vary depending on the material used in their manufacture, how the tank was installed and the composition of the surrounding soil. Most last for decades without problems. But, just like your roof, an underground tank eventually needs to be replaced. 

If you're ready to upgrade your old underground tank and live in New Jersey, you may qualify for reimbursement from the State. Contact us to get more specific details.
