How To Empty Recycle Bin Server 2008 R2

Our servers are always running out of space. We have alerts set up but they don't buy you much time to do something about it.

I use Space Sniffer to see what is taking up space on the server (folders and sub-folders) and the Recycle Bin itself had a couple of gig in it. So, how to empty it?

Unlike regular Windows, you can't just right-click and empty it.

There are a few ways to empty it but the easiest is to simply delete the contents of folder "c:\$Recycle.Bin"
