Trash is a term very rarely used within the United Kingdom.  It is very
common to called the items themselves "rubbish" in such a phrase as
"this can belongs in the rubbish".  In reference to the folder however,
as wikipedia[0] points out, in place of trashcan the British normally
use the term rubbish bin or more accurately just "bin" colloquially.  It
is much more accurate to call the wastebasket the rubbish bin in regards
to British English translations.
