Remove all items from the drawers and cabinets. Place in boxes, and move them to another room to give yourself space to work. Remove any appliances and other items from on top of the countertops. Spread out dropcloths to protect the floor—removing countertops can get messy.
Disconnect the sink plumbing, and remove the sink by unscrewing the mounting screws from underneath. If you have a cooktop stove mounted on the countertops, unscrew those mounting screws, disconnect the gas supply or electrical supply and remove the cooktop as well.
