Yes, you should be able to..

Clean-MailboxDatabase cmdlet to scan Active Directory for disconnected mailboxes that aren't yet marked as disconnected in the Microsoft Exchange store and update the status of those mailboxes in the Exchange store. This cmdlet isn't able to update the Exchange store unless the Microsoft Exchange Information Store service is running and the database is mounted.


Under normal circumstances, it isn't necessary to run the Clean-MailboxDatabase cmdlet because a mailbox is marked as disconnected immediately after the Disable-Mailbox or Remove-Mailbox command completes. If you used the Disable-Mailbox cmdlet or the Remove-Mailbox cmdlet while the Microsoft Exchange Information Store service was stopped, or if a mailbox was disabled by an external means other than the Disable-Mailbox cmdlet or Remove-Mailbox cmdlet, you may want to use the Clean-MailboxDatabase cmdlet to scan for disconnected mailboxes.
