I have followed steps described at Cleaning Up your Amazon ECS Resources, but even after deleting resources, de-registering container instances and deleting the cluster, the ECS resources are re-created and reappear in the ECS console.

If you created your Amazon ECS resources from the Get Started button on the ECS console page, your resources are contained in an AWS CloudFormation stack. The CloudFormation stack re-creates any resources that you have manually deleted.

Follow the steps at Delete the AWS CloudFormation Stack to completely clean up any AWS resources associated with the CloudFormation stack.

ECS, cleanup, CloudFormation, stack, delete, re-create, getting started, wizard, containers, restarting, reappear
