Why Choose J&J Environmental

J&J is the best choice for environmental cleanup in PA

Tank Removal

Tank RemovalWe vacuum out tanks before cutting them open

We clean tanks and wipe them down prior to removal or closure in place

Many of our competitors simply just pump out the free oil and remove the tank with the residual sludge still in the tank.  This can result in a release if a hole opens while pulling an old tank out of the ground.  It is also illegal to ship tanks to the scrap yard with oil sludge in them.

We use a Photoionization Detector (PID) Meter to screen soils onsite to determine if a release has occurred.

We take soil samples from under the tank according to PADEP sampling protocols and submit them to PADEP Certified environmental laboratories for analysis to provide the official documentation needed to prove a tank did not leak or that a cleanup has been done properly.
