Tutorial: Deleting an Amazon SQS Queue
If you don't use an Amazon SQS queue (and don't foresee using it in the near future), it is a best practice to delete it from Amazon SQS. The following example demonstrates deleting a queue.
AWS Management Console
Sign in to the AWS Management Console and open the Amazon SQS console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/sqs/.
From the queue list, select a queue.
From the Queue Actions drop-down list, select Delete Queue.
The Delete Queues dialog box is displayed.
Choose Yes, Delete Queue.
The queue is deleted.
Before you begin working with the example code, specify your AWS credentials. For more information, see Set Up AWS Credentials for Development in the AWS SDK for Java Developer Guide.
This action is identical for standard and FIFO queues.
