Google Drive trash items will be automatically deleted after 30 days starting on October 13, 2020

Google Drive will automatically delete trash items after 30 days beginning October 13, 2020. This means that items in Google Drive trash will begin to be automatically deleted after 30 consecutive days.

Google says "Items in trash will still continue to consume quota and your storage will still continue to be shared across Google Drive, Gmail and Google Photos."

Any files already in a user's trash will remain there for 30 days. Then after the 30 days period "files that have been in the trash for longer than 30 days will begin to be automatically deleted" says Google.

You can always restore files from the trash before the 30 day time window.
