Using "/Users/" & $USER -- this is a dangerous assumption, as it is
possible for the user's home directory to be somewhere completely
different, such as on a network volume!
Rather, you should use something like this:
delete folder $HOME & "/.Trash/foldername"
The $HOME environment variable is present on most *NIX systems
(including OS X) and points to the correct home directory, even if it
is on a server or in some location other than the default.
