In brief: Yes.
While the gallbladder does have some physiologic function, it is not a critical organ.
Most people don't notice much difference after it is removed. The body tends to compensate well after it is removed. Of the small percentage of people that do notice any change, the consequence is usually some diarrhea with certain fatty food intake.
