Tearing up concrete is pretty easy. All you need is a little bit of leverage and horsepower. An excavator or skid steer will usually get the job done just fine. Doing it right takes a bit of skill, but nothing is out reach because of cost or complexity. But at the end of the day, somebody has to crush and recycle it.
Were you planning to crush it? Are you equipped to handle that? If not, that’s fine. Most people aren’t. But then what do you even DO with that leftover concrete? First question is: do you even have a sturdy enough roll-off dumpster to handle that much concrete? Do you have a truck large enough to pull it all the way to where it needs to go? Concrete is heavy (surprise surprise), and it takes some pre-planning to get it taken care of. We have a few recommendations on dumpster size over at our sister site.
The next problem you will face is rebar: you will likely have rebar sticking out of your load every which way, which can be dangerous for workers. Rusty metal is just asking for tetanus if you’re not careful. Were you planning to try to separate it yourself? Maybe think twice about that plan.
