How do I get rid of an uninvited skunk guest?

I have a very old, small-garage-sized shed, which I filled with construction/demolition debris during the remodeling of my house. I've only emptied 2/3 of the debris, so I've still got about 10 cubic yards of debris left.
And now a skunk has taken up residence. It's even left a nice pile of crap by the door. Since it would be impossible to seal up the shed (there are holes between the foundation and the steel walls), what can I do to lure or force the skunk out of there?
If I can't force it out, what is the best course of action? Just pick a day and finally empty the rest of the debris out, thereby removing it's shelter? I assume the skunk is actually in the shed during the day, and out of it at night. Would I have to empty it at night, then?
