Complete Service

Industrial Disposal are specialists in the decommissioning, emptying and cleaning of oil tanks.

We will supply all plant necessary to complete your task – e.g. Vacuum tankers, lifting and craneage plant.

As licensed carriers of hazardous wastes, oils and combustible substances, we offer a fast and efficient service in the uplifting and transportation to licensed recycling and disposal centres.

All our work is completed to Gas-Free certification standards and we will issue relevant Waste Consignment Notes.

Legislation dictates that every stage of the process must comply with the stringent regulations of the Environment Agency and the Industry’s Health and Safety Executive. Rest assured that Boiler and Plant will provide you with all documentation required to demonstrate that such compliance is met throughout.

We operate oil tank cleaning and tank decommissioning services around the UK, but primarily in London, Essex, Kent, Surrey, Sussex, Bedfordshire, and Hertfordshire. Please contact us to discuss your tank cleaning requirements.

No tank too large – no tank too small

Whatever the shape or size of your tank and wherever it might be situated on site, either on a roof or below ground in a basement, we have the know-how, machinery and manpower to achieve access to them.

It could be necessary on occasion to deconstruct and rebuild tank room walls which we at Boiler and Plant will also undertake as part of our complete service to you.

For large tanks, man access will be undertaken by our qualified operatives who each hold Confined Space CSCS/CTCS certification

  • We adhere to safe working practices as legislated, using the latest safety equipment and breathing apparatus.
  • The cleaning process is monitored externally throughout by our designated top man operative.

For small tanks we will make careful analysis of the job in hand and decide the most cost effective and efficient approach to implement. When and where possible we will cold cut access holes for man entry using the latest cold cutting equipment or, we can clean tanks from the outside using water jetting equipment and specialised techniques.
