Does newLISP use garbage collection?

“Memory management in newLISP does not rely on a garbage collection algorithm. Memory is not marked or reference-counted.

Every memory object not referenced by a symbol is obsolete once newLISP reaches a higher evaluation level during expression evaluation. Objects in newLISP (excluding symbols and contexts) are passed by value copy to other user-defined functions. As a result, each newLISP object only requires one reference…”
