    If you are looking for a GUI app look at the free Trash It.

    Please try the following fix in order:

    1) Run terminal command "sudo rm -rf ~/.Trash"

    if nil help, then step 2.

    2) Reboot into the recovery partition (by holding CMD + R during boot), run disk utility at there to repair permission.

    if still nil help, then try the work around in step 3.

    3) Open finder, click the disk, press "CMD +I" to get the disk info, tick the "Ignore ownership on this volume"

    This requires a logout/login.

    Before doing anything you can try just restarting your machine or log in & out and see, had that happen to me before and a simple restart fixed it.
