I can't find the trashcan icon anywhere.

I'm using OS X 10.7.4. I'm not sure when it went missing.

I can still move items to the trash, but since I can't find it I can't empty it.

Is there a way to get the icons back, or an absolute path to it?

Note: I'm not using Time Machine.

    … And you can also empty your trash by choosing FinderEmpty trash… from the menu bar (when Finder is active, that is). Sep 30, 2012 at 7:35
  • this question would benefit from an answer that describes how to find Trash in the finder.
