You can try to dispute them, but most likely the credit bureaus wont remove them. You can call the closed account agency and ask if it they can remove it from your report. If not, then try calling the credit bureaus, and asking to remove because you're working on your credit to get a car or house, or whatever.

There is another component to your question and that has to do with the age of your accounts as well as were the closed accounts in good standing. Having a longer age of accounts, whether open or closed, is helpful. So if the accounts were closed and in good standing, just leave them there, they are most likely helping your scores. Either way, it is difficult to remove accounts that were yours.
