Even after doing a major compact they still remain, I agree that the older data is not returned
in scans but it is eating into my disk space.

You need to Major Compact for the data to be GC'ed from HDFS.   If you
access the datastore via HBase, though, cells that are older than the
specified TTL are not returned in scans, etc.
