I wouldn't know where to look to delete 32-bit packages. I imagine it would be done through Yum, but I'm not sure how to bring up both 32-bit and 64-bit packages that are the same so I can determine which ones to delete.
Yum is just a tool, a front end to rpm to be more precise. Yes the 32-bit packages can be removed using yum, for example;

yum remove firefox.i386
rpm -e firefox-<version# here>.i386

Both do the same thing.

To get the listing one can do, for example;

yum list firefox
rpm -qa --qf="%{n}-%{v}-%{r}.%{arch}\n" firefox
