Hi,

Well very first just clear the term "no longer needed", how can u identify that wht is not needed now?

If u can than just create a procedure which will delete the records from the respective tables according to ur definition of "no longer needed" and sehedule it on daily/weekly/monthly whtever u want basis. For creating the job use DBMS_JOB package.
Here is an example to submit a fresh job which will run at 12'O clock after every thirty days.

declare
a number;
begin
DBMS_JOB.SUBMIT(a,'proc_name;',sysdate,'trunc(sysdate)+30');
end;

For more refer oracle doc.
