Can't remove files from my Macbook Pro

I recently installed blueharvest to clean up my external drives and USB's of all the .spotlight, .trashes, ._files etc, but my free trial has come to an end and I've since found a free app in the app store so want to delete blueharvest. I've managed to delete most files (searched in finder under system files > are included) and found one remaining folder in caches.




However if I try to empty it from the trash it won't let me as says it's still in use.



How can I get rid of it?

Thanks
