    There are various ways to skip the recycle bin,one of them are:

    1.Change Properties to Skip Recycle Bin

    • Log in to your Windows PC.
    • On the Desktop, locate Recycle Bin folder.
    • Right-click on the Recycle Bin and choose Properties.
    • Under ‘Settings for Selected location’, choose the ‘Don’t move files to Recycle Bin. Remove files immediately when deleted.’ radio button.
    • If you want to prevent accidental deletion, click the ‘Display delete confirmation dialog’ checkbox.
    • Click the ‘Apply’ button and then ‘OK’ to save the changed Recycle Bin settings/properties.
      From now on, when you delete a file or folder, it will be permanently deleted from the system. Windows will automatically skip the Recycle Bin and based on your settings, you may get prompt to confirm permanent file deletion.

    Above answer is for normal case,for salesforce using ”Hard Delete” option in data loader.By using hard delete option will permanently delete from salesforce and it will not go to Recycle bin and also you cannot recover deleted records.
