In a SharePoint site, the recycle bin provides temporary storage for all items deleted from that site. The Recycle Bin can be accessed from below the quick launch bar on the left of the screen. SharePoint offers a two stage recycle bin so items that are deleted from the end user Recycle Bin may still be recoverable from the site collection Recycle Bin by a site collection administrator.
