So what company did it? I raised hell with my propane supplier for doing a uncalled for delivery. And before anyone says that’s what they do, I explicitly explained when I first am started with them that under no circumstances were they to fill up my tank without my consent.

I also found it curious they don’t name the culprit

It wasn't clear to me after reading the article if the homeowner or the company did it. This line suggests it could have been the homeowner. Why would the company leave their bucket and "oil contaminated household items?"

" Oil contaminated household items and a bucket of heating oil was outside the residence at 111 Minnesota Street,” DEP said."

Probably because the homeowners tried to clean up the mess.

Edit: If you care at all about your house, you immediately address disasters, at the very least.

As a disaster guy, you should definitely take pictures before you clean it up, so you have a record for insurance, Fema, or future litigation.

I mean, this response sounds kinda entitled. Propane routes are set so that they are as fuel efficient and just plane efficient as possible. Asking them to deliver at your own personal request is kind of a dick move, just saying. Imagine if everyone demanded they be refueled as they see fit. It would be chaos for the propane company and extremely wasteful overall having to dart all over the place. I say this as someone who is also on propane.

Edit: To clarify, this oil company was definitely wrong, not saying that at all.

They can add and remove people from routes you know. Same as trash people that do weekly or bi monthly are on the same routes. Entitled because I’m a paying customer, the hell is wrong with that?

Yeah, but you’re asking them to bend to your whim instead of just letting them set their routes. You’re making their job harder because you feel entitled to be served as you demand. Get over yourself lol.

No I’m not? I get two delivered a year my tank is 330 gal and I don’t use more than 3/4 a winter. They constantly want to top it off. On top of changing rates that’s a cash grab. You can get scammed but I’m good.

My propane company charges a delivery surcharge when the tank isn't "sufficiently" empty (less than a certain amount purchased). Also, it's nice to plan for a bill that will run from a couple hundred to a couple thousand dollars. I don't have a contract, as I own the tank, so your experience may differ.
