You can find and remove old kernels with Ubuntu Tweak.  Here is the
PPA for 14.04:

Start the tool, and select Janitor option.  Select Old Kernel, and the
tool will find all old kernels.  Select the versions you want to

I delete all but the last kernel, to have one to roll back to.

There are other nice tools in there to clean other parts of your system too!
