Trash and dust builds up in the hoistway.

You may find oily water in your elevator pit as a result of water coming into contact with hydraulic fluids or lubricants use in the elevator mechanics, which also holds the possibility of becoming physically contaminated with dirt or dust, or chemically through contact with saltwater.

Doing the dirty work yourself by finding your own method of disposal has consequences.

Florida Statute Section 403.703(9) prohibits dumping hazardous material on land or any body of water, which may enter a groundwater source– a serious environmental risk.

This is why there are businesses dedicated to handling this dirty oil.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), oil handlers must follow a set of guidelines, or management practices, to ensure the proper handling and recycling of used oil from spillages, leaks or intrusion. Then, it needs to be stored and transported in a labelled container to the right facility where it will be properly disposed of.
