The data managers, for example the NewsManager, are not responsible for storing information about what items have been sent to the Recycle bin, since the items are not moved but only marked as deleted. This is the responsibility of the Recycle Bin module, which is notified for all items that were moved in or out of the Recycle Bin through the Telerik.Sitefinity.Services.EventHub.
To check what items are in the Recycle bin, use the IRecycleBinManager:
IRecycleBinManager recycleBinItemsManager = RecycleBinManagerFactory.GetManager();
IQueryable<IRecycleBinDataItem> recycleBinEntries = recycleBinItemsManager.GetRecycleBinItems();
You could also get the specific IRecycleBinDataItem for the corresponding data item that is marked as deleted in the following way:
NewsManager newsManager = NewsManager.GetManager();
NewsItem newsItemToDelete = newsManager.GetNewsItem(itemId);
IRecycleBinDataItem recycleBinEntry = recycleBinItemsManager.GetRecycleBinItemForDataItem(newsItemToDelete);
The IRecycleBinDataItem contains general information for each data item that was sent to the Recycle bin and Sitefinity CMS uses it to visualize the Recycle bin page in the backend.
