[DllImport("shell32.dll")]
static extern int SHEmptyRecycleBin(IntPtr hWnd, string pszRootPath,
   uint dwFlags);

Tips & Tricks:

If you are interesting in this you might want to use the SHFileOperation to move things to the recycle bin.

Sample Code:

Here is a simple example of calling based on the above declaration. This will empty all recycle bins (rather than specifying one by including a path root in the pszRootPath parameter.

public static void Empty()
{
    int hresult = SHEmptyRecycleBin(IntPtr.Zero, string.Empty, SHERB_NOCONFIRMATION | SHERB_NOPROGRESSUI | SHERB_NOSOUND);
    System.Diagnostics.Debug.Write(hresult);
}
