Moving Files To The Trash
Mac OS X Only (Mac OS X Only)

Deleting a file is easy (use "delete file"), but suppose you want to move a file to the Trash instead, so the user has the choice of deleting the file or recovering it later? To do this, you can use an AppleScript, or more simply, use the "rename" command:
on TrashIt pFilePath
  get matchText(pFilePath,".*\/(.*?)$",tFile)
  rename file pFilePath to (specialFolderPath("trsh") & "/" & tFile)
end TrashIt
