    I've attached the file for download..it lets you remove and restore the Bin to the desktop.

    "You can remove the Recycle Bin from your desktop, without loosing the ability to delete files. You can still right-click on a file and select Delete, as well as using the Del key on your keyboard. Furthermore, there will still be a Recycle Bin directory on every drive. To add the Delete option to the Recycle Bin's context menu, follow these instructions:

    Download the Rename Recycle Bin Registry Patch (1k)
    Double-click on add delete to recycle bin.reg to make the change - it should take effect immediately.
    You'll then be able to remove the Recycle Bin by right-clicking on it, and selecting Delete.
    This will also add the Rename option to the Recycle Bin's context menu. (see Rename the Recycle Bin for more information)."

    TweakUI will do it for ya no probs

    If you have XP pro can do it this way
    1) Go to START and select Run
    2) Type GPEDIT.MSC
    3) Navagate to User Configuration | Administrative Templates | Click on Desktop
    4) On the right hand search " Remove Recycle Bin icon on the desktop " and double left click on it to ENABLE it.

    or on XP Home
    Create or modify the following registry entry

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\HideDesktopIcons\NewStartPanel
    {645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}

    REG_DWORD

    0x00000001

    Do you mean not use a recycling bin? Just permanantly delete the files?

    Right click the recycle bin>properties>"Do Not Move Files To Recycle Bin"

    That would remove all the icons, wouldn't it? ;)

    Here's what you need to do to remove only the Recycle Bin icon from the desktop in XP Pro.
    1) Start>Run>gpedit.msc
    2) Go to User Configuration>Administrative Templates>Desktop
    3) On the right-side pane, look for "Remove Recycle Bin icon on the desktop", double click it, and select Enable.

    Or (especially if you are using XP Home) add this registry value

    {645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E} REG_DWORD 0x00000001

    to
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\HideDesktopIcons\NewStartPanel
    or/and
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\HideDesktopIcons\ClassicStartMenu

    If any of the above keys isn't there, create it.
