I have a 3" PVC pipe (toilet rough-in-see pic) and a 2" PVC pipe sticking out from unfinished basement concrete floor for bathroom. I do not want to put a bathroom in that location. How do I get rid of those PVC pipes and concrete over? Are there plugs to glue into the pipes to make flush with the floor without concrete.
Thank you.

You would need to use an inside PVC pipe cutter like this:

And then plug it with an end cap like this:

Then concrete over top if you want (though that is quite a permanent solution).

In order to make a permanent cap you need one that glues over the outside diameter of the pipe itself. Since the concrete was poured directly up to the pipe, you're going to need to chip away some of the concrete to get at least enough pipe exposed and cleaned to cut the pipe and glue a cap. Depending how you intend to finish the floor, you might need to go deep enough to get a decent amount of concrete over the top of the pipe.

Hey, wait a minute.

This is awkward, but...
