You can call the kde trash from commandline. Write a script file with the 
name "trash" (or whatever you like) with the following content:

kfmclient move $@ trash:/

Now if you call "trash filename" then it will be moved to the kde trash bin.
This is better than "mv filename ~/.local/share/Trash" because the kfmclient 
takes care of meta-info (deletion time etc) so that it can be found and 
undeleted in the kde trash bin. 

Hope this helps
