Old Above-Ground Pool-Cutting apart walls

Hi, My husband and I are trying to get rid of a very old above-ground pool, as it's over 20 years old, and hasn't been used or maintained in 7 years. Therefore, we don't think it's worth keeping. My husband managed to collapse the walls, but now it's just a matter of cutting them apart so we can haul it out of there in manageble pieces. This thing is HEAVY, so we don't want to try to haul it out in one big huge piece. Basically, we need to know what tools are out there that can through the aluminum walls of this very old, brittle, and rusty pool. Thanks.

4 " grinder as like a mikita, or millwaukee, or De Wault with a metal blade,

will work wonders. can be rented from most tool rental places or home builder supply houses, cost apx. $90.00 new

riciprocating saw [ called a sawzall ] may be better for large uprights. ?

Last year I cut a pool up into appropriate sizes just using metal cutters ... $5 at the hardware store. I do admit, a power tool like an angle grinder or a reciprocating saw would have made the job go faster though.
