Yes. ppa purge then

sudo apt-get autoremove <packagename>

Where <packagename> is whichever package you installed from the ppa,
for example 'libreoffice'. That will remove libreoffice _and_ any
packages that it depends on, so long as they are not required by any
other applications.

You almost never need to remove them all individually by hand. That's
what autoremove is for.
