Where have they hidden the recycle bin?

ok... i found it on the desktop, but where is it really? – Kirstin Mar 20 '11 at 15:08
Why do you need to know? Just right click on the icon and select the empty option. – ChrisF Mar 20 '11 at 15:11

Each drive shows the recycle bin in windows 7, and it's a hidden folder called $Recycle.Bin ...although it shows up on each drive, there's really just one bin, all the drives are 'shortcuts' to the same bin. Right-click, empty really does fully empty it.
