A temporary table will get automatically dropped at the end of the session that created it. Often this means that you won’t need to worry about dropping temporary tables, however there are occasions where you might want to explicitly drop the table. There are several ways of doing this but I usually use the following code :
IF OBJECT_ID ('tempdb..#MyTempTable') IS NOT NULL
  DROP TABLE #MyTempTable
