June, you need to dig.....dig deep, wide and thoroughly. Chemicals are useless.
yes, there was a recent thread about removing yuccas but the simple conclusion was hard work I'm afraid.
If it is in the middle of the lawn you will have plenty of space around it. They are difficult because the root system goes deep and it readily regrows from pieces left behind.
a deep trench all the way round. A good winter job. Do it thoroughly now and the job is done but no half measures, ok?
Personally, it is good you are getting rid of it. It is a dangerous plant and not suitable for any garden. Don't let those who have yuccas persuade you as to their beauty etc. and urge you to keep it.
good luck June
