Mao,

What was in the tank? Heating oil, septic?

If it was heating oil, likely the EPA rules apply for decommission and
removal. Which translates to .  Septic, typical rule is crush the top,
collapse the sides to a certain depth below grade and write it as done.
Your local rules may be different.

Heating oil.  Septic is in the back yard.
It was mentioned that if the tank is registered, it might is permitted
to remain in place.
RB - I would be moving, but the new owner wants us to stay - he wants
the light industrial space on the property.  The light industrial
building here is constructed using bricks from the old Elgin National
Watch Factory that the original owner demolished in 1965.  Another
neighbor said that equipment from the factory was by the pound.

Filling the tank with sand sounds good.
But no superbugs to clean this tank out?
