You need to define a share to make recycle work.
EX.: [homes]
Path.....of homes
vfs object = recycle
Path ...of sales
vfs object = recycle

         recycle:exclude = *.tmp
         recycle:exclude_dir = /tmp
	recycle:directory_mode = 0777
	recycle:subdir_mode = 0777

After that I restarted SMB-Services, the clients and even the server by
