richtwes,

To change the name of the Recycle bin right click on the icon. Select Properties and click on the desktop item tab.  In the Title box you can change the name.

I don't know how to change the icon.

You can also rename the recyle bin at the same key - I successfully renamed mine to rubbish bin - does not take effect until reboot.......  Usual warning about registry hacks - beware.
