Problem with implementing Recycle bin

I'm trying to implement idea similar to recycle bin
in DYNIX/PTX.

When I say

>> mv log.txt ~/.trashcan  (works)


But when I tried:


function can        
{                  
  mv $1 ~/.trashcan
}                  

>> can log.txt

It says:

mv: Target must be directory                        
Usage: mv [-e ignore|warn|force] [-fi] f1 f2        
       mv [-e ignore|warn|force] [-fi] f1 ... fn d1
       mv [-e ignore|warn|force] [-fi] d1 d2    

.trashcan is already a directory.

What is the problem with it?
