I know atleast for gnome that it creates a .Trash folder in the partition (a few exceptions exist to this rule) so you are good there, I dont know how windows or other DE handle their 'trash'.
The best thing to do ofcourse is just be certain and create a temp folder within the encrypted partition which you treat like a manual trash or avoid all this complication and just be sure when you
are deleting stuff.
