As the Item Bank Manager, you are the only person that has the permission to remove a Collection from a project or to remove it completely from the project by deleting it. A Project Manager can only delete a collection if he/she is the person that created the collection.

In order to delete a collection, you can go to the Collections page and click the "X" next to the collection to delete it completely from the system.
