How do I get rid of the files that are still on the harddrive after puting them in the Recycle bin?

Is there freeware that will delete the files after they are put in Recycle Bin?

I have limited space on this computer and it would be cost prohibitive to purchase more memory at this time.

What  are some of the freeware programs?

Thank you.
