Apparently, the Train algorithm is well suited to distributed garbage
collection; see http://www.daimi.aau.dk/~beta/Papers/Train/train.html

I have no idea what the current status is of this.

Also, you may want to have a look at an  overview of the issues involved in

I hope the links are still valid. Cheers,
