User tidied up pagetree by moving pages into recycler.

Someone has to delete everything in the recylcler.

As user friendly solution could be adding a pageaction "clear recycler" to the context menu of any recycler icon (doktype 255).

Enable recursive deletion, delete every subtree within the recycler and do not forget to disable recursive deletion.

Hi and sorry for the late answer

Maybe I am understanding this wrong, but... AFAIK the "recycler" pag (doktype=255) is not the "recycler" feature/module. The module lists all records (possibly filtered by table) that have been removed using the TYPO3 delete button (that marks them with "deleted=1").

If you move your pagetree inside a page with doktype=255 you are not "deleting" them but it's like moving them inside a sysfolder (still AFAIK).

you can enable the recursive deleting of pages in the user preferences
you can empty the recycler using a scheduler task

Please tell me if I understood it wrong or explain better your scenario.

You understand it right, it's about the sys_folder "recycler".

The request, as I understand it, is to have "recursive deleting" inside recycler sysfolders without changing user preferences. Which sounds logically.

Or maybe have a user prev "Allow recursive deleting inside recycler folder"
