You can take a snapshot of your Droplet, deploy a new one, remove all existing keys and certificates, then create another snapshot off of that. This way you have a preconfigured snapshot lacking any private files such as SSL keys.

Let’s Encrypt stores files in the following directories, so make sure any files in there are deleted:

  • /etc/letsencrypt/keys
  • /etc/letsencrypt/archive
  • /etc/letsencrypt/live

You might also want to look for configuration files in /etc/letsencrypt as well as any other subdirectories and see if you want to clear any of those too.
