VBA Memory Allocation on removed collection items

I have a nested collection of objects, where each meter object(parent) has a collection of interval objects(children). If I remove a meter from the the parent collection that has 30000 interval objects in it's interval collection, do I need to iterate through each interval to remove it from the child collection? Or can I just remove the meter object?  Will Excel perform garbage collection on all child objects, or will this result in a memory leak?

Excel should perform garbage collection (though who knows when). However I would suggest that you use the terminate event of the parent to explicitly destroy the children (so to speak).
