Not exactly sure what you mean. KDE trash is collected by KDE konqueror
in a single folder. Xffm will not collect files to the KDE trash folder
but will instead put trash in wastebaskets located where the trash is
generated. The main trashcan branch is a database which keeps tabs of
all these wastebaskets and allows for centralized management. 

What the documentation refers to is that the KDE trash bin (which is
just a single folder can also be viewed from the main trash branch as
just another wastebasket. So you can see and recover whatever you have
deleted with konqueror from within xffm.
