You do not need to do that. Garbage collector will help you maintain unused instance of object.
It will cleanup automatically if there is no reference to that object.

In more detail about garbage collection.

Garbage collection is an mechanism that java virtual machine use for maintaining memory. The object that is not used anymore which JVM detect by check whether there is any reference to it or not. If not the container will decide to garbage that object from memory. We will not know when container(JVM) will decide to do that. Container start to do it by themselve.

Here is an example

String a="abc";  // this will create instance of string "abc" in memory and point or reference by variable a
a=null; // set a reference to null so "abc" instance can not refer to anymore
//container will clean "abc" later....
