Q: Can I just fill the tank with sand?
A: No. The inside of the tank needs to be cleaned to remove any oil that remains. If sand is put into the tank without cleaning the inside of the tank first, the sand that you put in will be contaminated with the oil from the tank, creating a bigger environmental problem.

Q: I have a home heating oil tank in my yard, do I need to remove it?
A: No, BUT when you sell or refinance your home, most lending institutions will require you to remove the tank before the loan is approved. Also, if the tank leaks, the plants around the tank may die and the oil could get into the drain tile around the house and end up in your sump pump.
