Garbage collectors attempt to reclaim memory occupied by objects that are no longer in use by the program. This process is called garbage collection. Garbage collection is a form of automatic memory management (As compared to manual memory management, which requires the programmer to specify which objects to deallocate from memory). It was invented by John McCarthy around 1959 to solve problems in Lisp.
