How to delete files from the wastebin?

Well, I don’t know where that wastebin is or how I’m supposed to remove the files/folders that I delete. I just click on the “move to wastebin” button and that’s it. I’d like to know to actually delete them since everyone likes more space on their system, its not like I have much anyway. Since I’m coming from windows, going to the Recycle bin and clicking on Remove files is easy, but being a new linux user I certainly have no idea what to do now. Thank you!
