The programs are completely independent. If you are happy with Lightroom 6 then it is safe for you to uninstall the older version. You might want to retain a backup of your last Lightroom 5 catalog.

if you have already migrated everything to Lightroom 6 , then you can surely uninstall or remove Lightroom 5.
That will save some space on the machine.
