Would you like to make you Recycle Bin into something a bit more exciting? Maybe a glowing toxic waste bin? With this tweak you can change the icon to be whatever you like.
Open you registry and find the key below.
Within the key are three values: '(Default)', 'Empty' and 'Full'. Set the values to equal the icon you'd like to display for the various states of the Recycle Bin.
Note: These changes should take place immediately, you may need to refresh your desktop by clicking on a blank area and pressing F5.

Key: [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}\DefaultIcon]
Value Name: (Default), Empty, Full
Data Type: REG_SZ
Data: Path to Icon File
