How do I recover deleted files from my recycle bin?

Minimise the use of the drive the files were on to avoid overwrting and try a recovery program such as Recuva here

Unless you mean items that are still visible in your recycling bin: just right click on them and select restore... or drag & drop. But I guess that's not what you mean, as life ain't that easy normally!

Fruit Bat's recommendation Recuva is good.

I assume you mean you have deleted them from the Recycle bin.

Download and run RECUVER.

If you know the drive that the files were on originally, run Recuver for that drive and save to a different drive, if you save to the drive that had the deleted files on- you run the risk of overwriting them.

You will probably find a lot of other deleted files, just select the ones you want.

This is the official site.
