The icon of a waste bin on your Windows desktop is tied to a utility called the "Recycle Bin." When you delete a file from your hard drive, it gets placed in this Recycle Bin for storage until it gets automatically (and permanently) removed at a later date. If this waste bin icon has disappeared from your Windows desktop, you can restore it at any time using the Windows desktop management utility.
