Oil in sump hole


Noticed my backup sump pump was running and not my primary one, so I took it out of the hole. Black oil all over it. Makes sense if the pump blew.

I get the part about how to replace the old pump, job is within my skill level, but I don't know what to do with the oil left in the sump hole. Do you try to clean it out?

Any ideas, thanks.

Doing the right thing would be too clean it out and dispose of it properly!
