I connected my phone to my laptop and searched the phone for "recycl" - no matches found. I searched my phone apps for "bin" - no relevant matches found. I have 200 apps on my phone, but didn't find any that seem like they would create a recycling bin. How can I find the recycle bin / recycling bin? In Google Photos, I deleted 500 MB of photos that had uploaded. I increased available space by zero.

Samsung A8, 2018. Android 9.

    The Google Photos app has a "Trash" area. If you are updated to the latest version, you will find the Trash screen in the Library tab. From there, you can truly delete the photos and reclaim device space. – CzarMatt Jul 10 '20 at 4:45
