Yep.  When there are no more pointers to an object, it's reaped.

(I'd thought a couple of times it'd be nice to be able to explicitly
gc an object, when you know for sure it's now inaccessible.  Could get
into a lot of trouble if it wasn't, but for temporary values in low
level functions it might hold off a gc for a little longer.)
