My solution is as follows.

The trash bin corresponds to a file (in the Desktop directory) named
"trash.desktop", whose contents are

[Desktop Entry]
Comment=Contains removed files

Then, if one creates the mentioned file, one is done.

How did I discover that? Looking at the trash.desktop file of another user.
