To do this you need to go to the finder menu, and then select the preferences option from the top of screen in the finder column. After that you click on the advanced option, and once the advanced menu is opened you can see the secure empty trash option and can toggle it to disabled.

You can also upgrade to El Capitan or Sierra.  They've removed it because they could not guarantee it on SSDs, based on the way SSDs work.
