After the domain was disjoined, computer objects did not get removed automatically from the domain.

how do I automate the process of cleaning up stale computers without using any script?

do we have any GPO to clean up the process?

    That's the default action. When you disjoin computers from the domain, the account remains in the directory. It gets marked Disabled.

    automate the process of cleaning up stale computers without using any script

    Seems a contradictory statement.
