Typically handled by facilities/maintenance. And yes, messy, smelly, nasty work, but usually with low-moderate hazards.

Our tank HAD to be emptied several years ago.  A person from the physical plant and I did it all.  What a huge, nasty smelling mess!

That was one day I'm glad I didn't wear a dress.
