Warning!! Warning!!

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.
