Is there a PowerShell cmdlet to delete a Timer Job in SharePoint 2010?

I don't have a spare timer job to test this with currently, but this should work, replacing mysitecleanup with the name of your timer job.

$jobToDelete = Get-SPTimerJob | ? { $ -eq "mysitecleanup" }

You can use the Get-SPTimerJob cmdlet, and possibly delete from there. Check out Delete timer jobs for a trick on removing a job...
