Kitchen peninsula removal and disposal is a bit tricky. While it doesn’t necessarily require specific trade skills, it is very helpful to be handy around the house. At least a medium-level skill-set is needed to do it right. So, if you’re a total novice, this probably isn’t for you. The real challenge comes from peninsulas equipped with electrical power and/or water.
Kitchen Peninsula Disposal
Kitchen island removal isn’t all that difficult, so much as it is time-consuming. The real problem lies in what you’ll do with the materials. If you’re beginning a kitchen remodel, you’ve got to think far beyond style and upgrades. After all, any type of renovation generates a whole lot of waste. And, you’ll need remodeling debris removal and hauling for that part of the process.
A peninsula is basically a connected island, converting an L-shaped kitchen layout into a horseshoe or U-shape. In many kitchens that have this layout, the peninsula serves as a room divider that separates the kitchen from the dining or living room area, as seen in this design. —HGTV.com
In other words, think about the entire remodel as a series of phases. There’s the planning phase, the demolition phase, the debris removal, the build out, plumbing and electrical, appliance installation, trim, and more. If you plan to reuse the island, you’ll need to set it aside (if you’re relocating it). But, if you are taking it out completely, you can simply call a junk hauling service.

Empty it out to start. Then, gather together a couple of drill-drivers, pry bars, wrenches, and hammers. Then, enlist the help of a friend or family member. Once you’re ready to begin, follow these steps to remove your kitchen peninsula from where it stands:
- Disconnect the plumbing and wiring. You’ll need to disconnect the electrical wiring and plumbing. First, turn off the power by shutting off the breaker and the water supply. If necessary, call in professionals for this step.
- Take off the molding and trim. Pry off the molding and trim from the top and bottom of the kitchen peninsula. Put the molding and trim out-of-the-way so it isn’t a tripping hazard.
- Remove the countertop. Once the electrical wiring and plumbing is disconnected, you can take off the countertop. You’ll need someone to help you unfasten it and lift it off the base.
- Disassemble the base. When the countertop is off the base, you can then disassemble the base itself with a pry bar and drill-driver. (It will probably be assembled in four sections.)
