I used google and found some things that may assist you:

in the thread

it mentions a conflict with other programs:

it turns out there was another "cleaning" program
interfering with the Recycle Bin. I had installed a couple of these to
try them out but neglected to remove them afterward.

I uninstalled both RedButton and Cleanup Assistant, rebooted, and the
problem is gone, so one or both of these was the troublemaker.
