Removing ABS Plumbing Pipe

I'm planning on installing a laundry tub to replace one that's already there - the new tub needs to have the P-Trap lowered - the existing one is attached quite secure and with some plumber's cement glue.

Can anyone please recommend the best way to remove the existing P-Trap that's installed on the pipe that coming out from the wall?

Thanks

Post pics for comment. Typically i use a dremel, hacksaw or reciprocating saw.

If you need to lower the p-trap in order for the new sink to fit you would also have to lower the trap arm exiting the wall . How to accomplish that will depend on how / where the sink is vented and where the fixture drain is run

Recip saw, a decent blade, and roughly 15 seconds.

Hi,

It's plastic, use a hand saw if you don't have a reciporcating saw. How much lower does the p trap have to be to accommodate the new sink? Would it be easier to build a pedestal for the new sink?
