Default Recommendations to get rid of oil tank and old boiler?

We are replacing oil heating system with electric heat pump. Does anyone have any suggestions on who to call to get rid of old oil tank and boiler?

clean harbor . or cut oil tank in half and use rags and speedy dry to clean it out and put it in the trash.

I'd try my oil company. Not sure I would replace a boiler with a heat pump though.

If you have access for the tank and boiler to be removed easily post an ad on craigslist for scrap.

It wont be cheap if you use someone like Clean Harbors, ENPRO, etc. Expect 1,800 - 2,500. If you choose to DYI, make sure you pump as much liquid from the tank as possible before you cut it. Personally, Id call a pro. Yes it is more costly but clean up of an oil spill could make it seem like a drop in the bucket. Call New England Disposal Technologies (NEDT). NEDTINC.com
