On GNOME, just open a file browser (aka Nautilus; for example open your home folder), in the sidebar on the left is Trash. Click it to see what is in it, right-click it to empty.

With Gnome 2.xxx , if you right-click on the Panel bar and Add an icon form" Trash " , then click on that button will bring up a file manager window headed "Trash" and listing anjy items in Trash. You can delete the files there.
But if you up-level in that window, you get your User directory in Nautilus, and 'show hidden files' will NOT show the Trash directory.
