That depends on how much clean up want to do. Assuming you have no clients reporting to it any longer you can simply turn it off and remove the AD account. That will leave some AD object that will not hurt anything. If you really want to clean it all up then here is a MS article to help.

Okay, no clients are reporting to it anymore. I just wanted to make sure if I decommissioned it, it would not break anything if I didnt clean out the attributes in the schema.
