Linux shell has no such thing as a recycle bin, thats a windows thing 
(some linux graphical desktops might create one in for a user's files, 
it would be in his /home/username somewhere).

df -h shows a lot of info, for instance on one of my servers, I see...

# df -h
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
                        50G  7.7G   39G  17% /
tmpfs                  12G     0   12G   0% /dev/shm
/dev/sda1             477M  146M  306M  33% /boot

                        30G  671M   30G   3% /var/lib/pgsql
                       150G   61G   90G  41% /var/lib/libvirt/images
                       1.8T  470G  1.4T  26% /home2

# du -hs /home/*
398M    /home/downloads
16K     /home/ipsloth
16K     /home/junk
4.1G    /home/observers
32M     /home/pierce
2.5G    /home/scac

2.5GB + 4.1 GB + the odds and ends there adds up to pretty close to the 
7.1GB 'used' in the /home file system.
