Long-gone computers still listed in DNS

I just noticed a bunch of computer names in my DNS Forward-Looking zone for machines that were  surplussed long ago.

Can I just delete them?  Is there any related cleanup to be done?

Environment is Server 2008 R2.

As long as those computers are definitely gone you can safely delete their entries in DNS.
