Question Shed demolition

Getting a new, larger, shed for the back yard so I need to remove my old one. Its a Ted's Shed type, wood framed, aluminum covered, approx 8 x 8 or a bit bigger.

My plan at this point is to use a reciprocating saw to cut out the walls leaving the roof supported by 4 corners and then to collapse the roof forward and cut everything up into small enough chucks to have it hauled away.

Does anyone have any better ideas on quick and safe ways to do this? I'll have very little or no help.

Thanks!
Tom

put a ad in the paper or in your local freecycle or craigs list

"free shed , you remove ".

let somebody who needs it remove it for you

win/win

(If you where nearby I would be interested )

Broward county. Problem is that you can't get it out without a crane....

Down there go like mango man said.
If you are out of town try for a burn permit or see if the fire dept. would burn it for you. I know they did sometimes in palm beach county.

Burn won't work. Too close to wooden fence, vegetation, and houses. We're in town.

Thanks. We did it with a sawzall and sledgehammers. A chainsaw would have helped a lot on the foundation section, but I don't have one. It was quite a bit of work, mostly in hauling the debris out front, but my son helped and we got it done in about 6 hours.

Thanks for the tips!
