Whether you're on a computer or with your phone, you can clear the recently closed tabs section. Opening and closing Google Chrome twice in a row will clear the history of recently closed tabs on your device. If you're signed in to Chrome, the recently closed tabs may still appear on other devices signed in to your account. In this case, you will need to clean the recently closed tabs on each device individually.
