Use an escalated notification set to xx seconds that executes a HTTP action. In the url of the notification use the API call:

/api/deleteobject.htm?id=objectid&approve=1 

This will immediately delete the referenced object including all subobjects, if there are any. E.g. deleting a group deletes all its devices and sensors! There is no way to undo a deletion so use this function with care.
