There is a setting somewhere that says Exchange will keep all items that are in the deleted items recovery store until a back up is done.  Can you check that?  Sorry I don't know exactly where to look for that.

Go to the properties for the Private Information Store (will be under server section) and look at the General tab.  There is a setting that lets you set the amount of days to keeps items and a checkbox underneath that states don't permanently delete until a backup is performed.  If that box is checked, item will stay past the retention date until a backup is performed.  Clear it and items should fall off after the amount of time specified.

Outside of that, I do not know of a way to purge all items for all users.

Using exactly the messsage advised by Neo_mvps, but setting the deleted items retention time to 0 days! That will purge absolutely everything. But could be considered a little drastic!!
