Commercial Heating Oil Removal A Guide to Safe and Responsible Disposal

If your business uses heating oil to keep your premises warm, you’ll be aware that the time will come when the tank needs to be emptied. This is typically when it’s reaching the end of its life or when you switch to a different type of fuel. However, it’s essential that you dispose of your commercial heating oil correctly to avoid causing damage to the environment and risking legal penalties.

At LV Fuel Services, we specialize in commercial heating oil removal and disposal, and we’re here to provide you with all the information you need to ensure the process is carried out safely and responsibly.

Why Is Commercial Heating Oil Removal Necessary?

Over time, heating oil tanks can become contaminated with water, sludge, and other debris, which can cause blockages and prevent the fuel from being efficiently burned. This not only leads to increased fuel consumption and costs but also reduces the lifespan of your heating system. As such, it’s essential to have the tank emptied and cleaned regularly to maintain its efficiency and safety.

Additionally, if you’re switching to a different type of fuel, such as natural gas, you’ll need to dispose of your remaining heating oil before the new system can be installed.

How do you dispose of heating oil?

Domestic heating oil can be taken to household waste recycling centres. However, commercial heating oil disposal is not afforded the same ease, as it’s often used in far larger quantities. It therefore needs to be removed by a professional oil disposal company, such as LV Fuel Services.

How do you remove heating oil from a tank?

To remove heating oil from a tank, you can use a siphon and the tank’s pump to unload waste heating oil. Industrial pumps are also available for quick and efficient removal. Heating oil can also be burnt off, however, we do not recommend this option, as it’s costly for your business and bad for the environment.

Can heating oil be pumped out?

Commercial heating oil can be pumped out. Again, because of the quantities involved and therefore the higher level of risk, a professional oil removal service should be enlisted to ensure its safe pumping out and total removal.
