Set mail-source-delete-incoming to 30 as described in the manual:

,----[ (info "(gnus)Mail Source Customization") ]
| `mail-source-delete-incoming'
|      If non-`nil', delete incoming files after handling them.  If `t',
|      delete the files immediately, if `nil', never delete any files.
|      If a positive number, delete files older than number of days (This
|      will only happen, when receiving new mail).  [...]
