Debian trash location

I don't know if it's just me being dense, but I can't seem to find a definitive location for deleted files in Debian, like the Trash folder in Ubuntu, any ideas where 'deleted' files go?

Probably:
Code:
 ~/.local/share/Trash

but i think i just read something which made me wonder (in other words: don't bet on it. I had to look it up myself and found it with:
Code:
 find . -name '*trash*'

but my knowledge of find is limited (there might be smarter solutions with find).

On my Debian 6.0.x...
Code:
cd ~/.local/share/Trash

I don't have the current Debian version so it could have changed but is highly unlikely...
