    Wow, that really sucks. It would have been convenient.



    Edit:

    Wow. Thanks for you post. It convinced me to get info in my trash folder. I just pulled the preview of the trash can into my finder side bar and now its there. So I guess it is possible

    Naw, don't know how, but at least for me, within Finder - right click and select Move to Trash is easier than drag n drop
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    There's the free Wastebasket that works like an alias. You can download it from versiontracker.com. It allows you to put the trash can on the desktop, as in days of yore. It links to the real trash, but the icon doesn't change when anything's in it.

    However, you could put the Wastebasket (you can rename it) in any folder, then drag it to the dock where you'd end up with two trashes. Since both would be in the dock, it wouldn't matter that the Wastebasket icon doesn't change.

    Another app, Bin-it, shows up at versiontracker with the search for Wastebasket. But it constantly runs in the background (and it's nagware).

    Oops. After downloading the thing and working with it, I wrote about the dock, not the finder sidebar. Wastebasket can go there, too.
