Excuse my ignorance but how would you execute this script?

Copy/paste the script into the "Script Editor" application (Applications -> Utilities), press play.

Or you could save this to a file, "Purge Old Reminders.scpt," and then from Terminal use the command line program osascript,

osascript "Purge Old Reminders.scpt"

You'll be asked to grant Terminal permission to access your Reminders.
