From privileged mode, you can use "clear ip dhcp binding x.x.x.x" where x.x.x.x is the address that you want to return to the pool.  If you're running into this sort of thing regularly, you may want to be more aggressive with your leases so that they automatically expire a bit more often rather than remaining allocated when not in use.
