if you're just trying to tidy things up, you can create a folder and put those layers in that folder.

 

if you really want all the assets in the same layer select the layers you want to merge (using shift click and/or ctrl click)>right click>click merge layers

Are the various layers different graphics like PNGs or are they vector graphics? You tidy/merge layers as kglad has said. If there is something else you'd like to do with reducing the amount of assets, let us know the format and otehr options can be given
