to remove AD accounts from recycle bin use the following:
Get-ADObject -filter {isdeleted -eq $true -and name -ne “Deleted Objects”} -includeDeletedObjects -property * | Remove-ADObject

Open in new window

actually i did not enabled AD recycle bin in Domain controller. So the deleted objects will stored in "DeletedObject" container. I confused this deletedobject container with AD recycle bin. Actually i want to empy this deletedobject container.

If the recycle Bin not activated, then the object will be avaiable on the tombstone object and it will be maintained for the next 180days.Let me know the reason why you need to remove the object permanently, because as best practice the deleted object need to be removed after the tombstone period.refer the link for more information...
