The idea of the trash bin is to remove un-wanted data from your PC.

Once you delete the contents of the "trash bin" it's gone.

There are programs out there to help you recover data that may have been accidentally deleted, but it won't always work.

Disk Drill is a free Mac data recovery software designed natively for Mac OS

Are you deleting them off an external hard drive? Only items on the local hard drive will apear in the trash bin.

I had a similar problem on my mac without any external drives. I click 'delete' on a file -> I hear the sound of a trash bin -> But the icon doesn't change. Looks like it's still empty. But then I found all my deleted files inside the Trash Bin.
Restarting the system helps. In my situation.
