Hello Buck, and welcome to Seven Forums.

What custom Recycle Bin icon are you referring to? How was it created?

First double check to make sure that the default Recycle Bin has it's default "empty" and "full" icons set for it.
Desktop Icons - Change or Restore Default Icon
If you are referring to a Recycle Bin icon on the taskbar as in the tutorial below, then after you do the above, delete the one on the taskbar completely, and completely start over in the tutorial to create a new one.
Recycle Bin - Pin to Taskbar
Hope this helps for now,
Shawn

I'm speaking of the one on the desktop, I used P.S. Elements to generate the transparencies and an online png to ico converter for 256x256 ico. It works fine for all my desktop icons except the recycle bin, it functions but it does not change from empty to full icons when I delete something.
