Pressing the delete key moves items to the trash folder. To permanenty delete you can press <shift><delete> or right click on the file and select delete.

There are several ways you can see the trash folder:
1. Under places in the mint menu
2. In the sidebar of any open folder (ie home, view->sidebar if it isn't visible)
3. On the desktop via mintdesktop preferences.
