It doesn't really do garbage collection as such.

As an analogy imagine the garbage man came once a week and burned your house down. It's much more time and space efficient than taking out the trash.

You can't actually delete objects in my scheme, only allocate to pools. You can recycle entire pools though, manually, freeing (invalidating) all pointers (or objects) therein.

Doing it that way makes it fast fast fast and it works on constrained memory environments. Also it was easy to code.
