You can completely remove you account by following the instructions on the facebook site:

Perhaps it is best to make a backup first.
  • [Top right] Select Settings
  • Download a copy of your Facebook data ( on General Account Settings )
  • Click Start my Archive
  • You will receive a email with a link to a zipped file
For info you can also deactivate your account,
but then everything is saved, and some information is still visible to "others".
You can restore your account later:
