KDE 4.1.2 Lost Wastebin in Dolphin


I accidentally chose 'Remove Wastebin' instead of 'Empty Wastebin' with a right click in the Dolphin file-manager on the 'Places' bar on the left. I have searched all over the place, and can't find an option to put it back! I've added a Wastebin widget to the desktop, but that's not really what I want.

Does anybody know where to find the option to control what you see in the 'Places' panel, please?

It's really simple - navigate to trash folder in Dolphin (for example, click on the wastebin widget on your desktop - Dolphin will open), then right-click anywhere within folder (i.e. the main part of the window), choose 'Add to places'.
