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?

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 wonít 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, Iíd 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

I think it was a COMMTANK ad. Believe they are out of Bedford area. No idea on pricing.

The ad was for spencer brothers oil tank removal. We haven't scheduled removal yet but based on preliminary discussion it should be hundreds not thousands for our above-ground residential tank.

If you have any questions about your oil tank, give us a call at 603-OIL-TANK. We have been in business for the past 30-plus years focusing primarily on the installation and removal of above/underground storage tanks. We are based out of Laconia.

For more, visit us at http://www.spenceroiltankremoval.com/.

I've got a use for it. Cut the tank in half, and I'll give you $50 for one of the halves.

http://www.jjenv.com/oil-tank-remova...ement-oil-tank

Includes a seven minute instructional video made by J & J Environmental in Pennsylvania. Talks about sawzall blades, kitty litter, what and how to do it responsibly if you don't want to spend your money to hire their removal service.

Craigslist-NH has a number of used oil tanks offered for free in their free section so offering it for free probably does not work.
