    Here, Trash seems to depend on a file "trash.desktop" in my Desktop folder, as well as ".local/share/Trash". I would guess you might be missing that "trash.desktop" file. It is probably copied to there from somewhere else on the system, but I'm not sure where.
    Template is /usr/share/kio_desktop/directory.trash

Any directory to be used exclusively be a given user should be owned by that user. If you want a shared data area all that need access should be in the same group and the data area should be in that group. It is very unclear what you are doing and why.
    I have a specific partition that can be accessed by any of the OS installed. It is my primary data storage area. That is the "other" directory I was referring to. So at install it was simply a mount point to an existing partition. The system set it up as user/root and group/root. That is the directory that will not let me use trash. When I was running Leap 42.2 this wasn't an issue. However I notice that shift-delete does work.

    Ok I guess this is a MS FS then?? If so the permissions are faked at mount because MS stuff does not have the same permissions as a true Linux file system. Show us the /etc/fstab

    Windows-C is the primary drive with applications
    Windows-D is the data drive

    I am 99% linux, except when tax time comes around. The application we use does not run well on Wine, so that is one of the rare times we boot to Windows. All data is on the Windows-D, for any OS I run.

    Did some digging as the comment above rang a bell about windows partitions needing more specifics in fstab. Below solved the permissions and access.
    Code:
    UUID=420EFA6B0EFA56FF                      /windows-D        ntfs-3g    uid=dad,gid=users,umask=0022    0 0
    
    UUID=F84ECD3B4ECCF402                      /windows-C        ntfs-3g    uid=dad,gid=users,umask=223    0 0
    the first one is r/w/e
    the second one is basically read only

    Now the right mouse click, send to trash is working.

    So, now to the second part of my initial request for help. How do I place a trash bin on the desktop?
