You would need to copy all files to your own serwer and recreate few control files like Packages.gz, Contents.gz, etc. Other option is "apt-mirror" or "apt-cacher-ng" - these can do it for you (but you need to have possibility to execute them on server), the later only download packages when it is requested from client (and not already cached), former download whole repositories. But main question is: why multiple entries in "sources.list" is a problem for you?
