Answer

Remove the <select> elements with .remove().

document.querySelectorAll("select").forEach(el => el.remove());
<span>Span First</span>
<select>
<option>opt 01</option>
<option>opt 02</option>
</select>
<span>Span Second</span>
<select>
<option>opt 11</option>
<option>opt 12</option>
</select>
