Other than prepare yourself for years of bad luck

Wear gloves safety glasses and have a couple of boxes to insert broken pcs into as they come off the walls.

I had to do the same thing a few months ago, used a small pinch bar and surprisingly enough many came off without breaking.

Most garbade collection will not take mirror, as it is considered hazardous material, you will have to drop it at a recycle center for hazardous waste.
