Constituents can not have the email lists:
On the Constituents grid, in the left column, you can select an Email List(s) to see the contacts who have the entry(s). You can use Actions>Batch Update Records to remove an Email List.

Review your campaigns and surveys:
If you go to Workspace>Email Marketing>Campaigns, you can select Actions>Export to Excel File; Lists will be a column on the spreadsheet. You can do the same in Workspace>Surveys/Forms>Surveys/Forms List.
If the list is included in an email campaign or survey, you won't be able to delete.
If you delete the campaign or survey then you can delete the list. Keep in mind that if you delete a campaign, you will lose all historical data related to that campaign.
If you do not want to delete the campaign or survey you can edit the list to make it inactive.
