What permission needed to view the site recycle bin? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Although some users have delete right on some libraries (break inherent), he/she cannot see the recycle bin in site content page. 

    PS. Does SP07 show the site recycle bin if user has delete permission on specific library or list?

  • I think a site owner can see the recycle bin.

  • Hi,

    Owners with Full control Permission Level can see the "Recycle Bin". Site Collection Administrators both primary and secondary can see the Administrator recycle bin as well as user recycle bin.

  • in the below site, it only said "You need administrator or owner permissions to use the Site Collection Recycle bin", but not describe site recycle bin (first level). what is the minimum permission level to see the recycle bin?

  • Hi,

    Site owners or anyone with Full control permissions will be able to view First level Recycle bin (Site Contents --> Recycle bin)

    Site administrators can view both First and Second stage recycle bin via Site Settings --> Recycle Bin under Site Collection Administration. At the end of the Recycle bin page there will be an option to check second stage recycle bin.

    Hope this helps.

  • I agree with the admins seeing the second stage, but disagree that you have to be a site owner to see the first stage. By default, anyone with standard contribute access at the site level can see the first stage recycle bin.

  • Hi,

    Sorry, yes, I agree.

    Anyone with standard Contribute/Edit access at the site level can see the First stage recycle bin via Site contents --> Recycle Bin.

    Admins can see both First and second stage recycle bin.

  • Hi Johnson,

    Users who have at least Contribution permission at site level can access first level recycle bin. In more detail, users who have “Delete Items” and “View Application Pages” permissions at site level can access first level recycle bin.

    Site administrators can access second level recycle bin.

    Best Regards,

    Dean Wang
