The first step is to prevent any additional waste from escaping out of the lid by stopping the water usage in the kitchen. Once you have controlled the water usage, be sure to place a barrier such as sand bags or sand absorbent around the contamination preventing it from spreading any further.
Use a generous amount of sand absorbent to soak up all liquid spills until all waste is dried. Place heavy duty degreaser to remove stain or residue on the contaminated area. High pressure wash the contaminated area and have a water recovery vacuum to prevent any contamination from entering the city storm drains. Repeat process until all stains are gone.
