Default Accidentally deleted Recyle Bin

I accidentally deleted my recycle bin from my desktop instead of clicking "empty recycle bin"...Where can I find it off the desktop?

Get TweakUI which is one of the Powertoys from Microsoft.. Run that, and the Desktop section allows you to select which icons to show on the desktop by default. You should be able to get the Recycle bin from there

Vista - rightclick, properties, Change desktop icons(on the left), check recycle bin.

XP - rightclick, properties, desktop tab, customize desktop..., restore default

Most people are wanting rid of it instead of trying to get it back.
