If you're not using mongoosejs (which automatically casts the string into ObjectId) then you'd have to cast the string into an ObjectId.

const idToDelete = '5dcc20c3770b9707143301fb'

// if not using mongoose
collection.deleteOne({_id: new mongodb.ObjectID(idToDelete)}, callback};

// if using mongoose > 4 (deleteOne isn't supported on mongoose 4 or higher)
collection.findByIdAndRemove({_id: idToDelete}, callback);
