If I understand the question correctly, you want to remove content types associated with the document library.

To do this, go to List Settings -> Advanced Settings -> Set 'Allow Management of Content Types' to 'Yes'. Then go back to list settings, you should see a list of content types under content types section. Click on the one you want to remove and you should see a link that says 'Delete this Content Type'.
