How to Add Recycle Bin to Android

Android doesn’t have Recycle Bin. So if you delete a file accidentally, it gets deleted permanently.

But, you can add Recycle Bin feature to Android with the help of the Dumpster Photo & Video Restore app. This app acts as the Recycle Bin of your device and stores the deleted files within it. You can restore the files from the app whenever you wish.

Dumpster doesn't need an internet connection and works on both the rooted and non-rooted Android device.

Add Recycle Bin to Android

Install the app. From now on, Dumpster will store all the deleted items of your device.

In case, if you don't want the Dumpster to store some file formats (For instance: Documents), then you can disable it in the Settings.​

  • Open Dumpster app.
  • Click on Hamburger icon and select the Settings from menu.
  • Tap Recycle Bin Settings.
  • Tap Documents to disable it. From now, the app will not save documents file formats.
  • Recycle Bin Settings

To delete all the items permanently from Dumpster, click on "Empty Dumpster" option from the menu and click on "Empty" in the confirmation message.

Also you can use the "Auto Clean" option to automatically clean the files on the Dumpster older than 1 week, 1 month or 3 months as per your wish.

To restore a file from Dumpster, follow these steps:

  • Open Dumpster.
  • Select a file that you want to restore.
  • Click on Restore icon at the corner.

Remember, you can restore a single file or multiple files at once.
