In the users list of your Service Desk project, select the organization so you can see the users in it.

Then, at the top right corner of your screen select the option "Delete organization":

Thank you very much.

Why are deleted organizations still in the database?

I have the same problem as @Fer Ducloux.

I deleted the Organization from my project and want the same one but all ridden in capital letters.

Now I always get the suggestion for the old Organization without capital letters and I cannot create the new one!! -.-

So I had to use the old one. Thankfully I was able to rename it.. but you should be able to administer all organizations existing and be able to delete them if they are not used anywhere.
