If the nest is relatively small, and you are not being bothered by the wasps, it can be left alone. Wasps are not going to return to an old nest after the summer life cycle is finished. The number of wasps that you see will significantly reduce during the autumn, and throughout the wintertime they'll die out apart from new queen wasps. This doesn't imply that wasps will not come back to the same area, but just that the old nest will not be used again. An old wasps nest does not rot away or decay as it is built with a cellulose (paper like) material, which means it can be left in position and not cause any additional problems.
