There are several reasons why sou see trash:/// as the URI instead of
~/.local/share/Trash/:

     1. It is a virtual folder. It not only includes the actual files
        (from  ~/.local/share/Trash/files/) but also the metadata (e. g.
        time a file was deleted, stored in ~/.local/share/Trash/info/).
     2. If you have multiple partitions, there are several trash-folders
        on your system. The trash for an external USB drive is on that
        external drive, otherwise deleting files could take ages as they
        would have to be copied to your $HOME, which perhaps might not
        even have enough space left. All the different folders are
        presented as a single one in the virtual filesystem trash:///.
