Rechargable galvanic cell??[remove the salt bridge}

In a galvanic cell,a salt bridge is used to maintain potential difference between the two half-cells.Now,once the charge accumulation is maximum,then even the salt bridge cannot maintain potential difference.At this point,what if one removes the salt bridge??Most of the charges will flow back to their respective half-cells.Thus,we have a recharged cell!!Is this possible??

No, it is there to separate solutions, so that they don't react directly, and to close circuit.
