Since macOS 10.12 Sierra, Apple has included a way to automatically empty your Trash every 30 days, which can free up disk space and reduce mental clutter. Enabling it is easy, but the option requires some research. Here is the fastest way to activate it.

First, go to “Finder” by clicking on the Mac desktop. In the menu bar at the top of the screen, click on the “Finder” menu and select “Preferences”.

Click on Finder data-recalc-dims = Preferences in the menu bar on Mac »width =» 650 ″ height = »294 ″ onload =» pagespeed.lazyLoadImages.loadIfVisibleAndMaybeBeacon (this); “Onerror =” this.onerror = null; pagespeed.lazyLoadImages.loadIfVisibleAndMaybeBeacon (this); “>

In the “Finder Preferences” window that appears, click the “Advanced” button.

In the “Advanced” options, find the option that says “Delete items from recycle bin after 30 days” and check the box next to it.
