If you delete the recycle bin, where does it go?

Files are just a long arrangement of bytes on your hard disc, where they are stored via magnetically opened/closed shutters. To delete a file permanently these shutters are simply all set to 0.

Now go rub a magnet over your hard drive.

I've always been too afraid to try and delete it so I never did.

...and I don't have any magnets laying around...

You can never legally delete it as it's always restore-able via control panel customization.
