Hide them.
They're delivered by the carrier as Service Books, and will just come back if you delete them.

That's most likely a service book pushed to you by your carrier. You could go into Options > Advanced Options > Service Book and delete the service book. However, it will show up again when you reboot the device or resend your service books. It's best just to hide it. Out of sight, out of mind.
