garbage is collected only where VM's "free" memory runs low.
See World Menu -> help -> vm statistics
to see memory counts. In the same menu, you will also see "space left",
which triggers garbage collection and then reports the free space.
In Squeak, a "process" is just a chain of activation frames (contexts)
tracking nested sends. This is the chain of contexts you see in Process
browser (right pane) or in Debugger (top panel).
