If you're going to recycle content, I would strip it from a page - then add the noindex/nofollow meta tag, then go into the Google Webmaster control panel and remove the URL from the index completely. Then shut down the site. Then reuse the content. Doing it this way ensures that it's all gone.
This is a good idea to strip the content out of the index before reusing it.

Content creations cost money so recycling can help the bottom line.
