This is what I do for clear my trash:

# echo '/usr/sbin/tmpwatch --dirmtime --atime --force $[24*30] /u/samba/cestino/' > /etc/cron.daily/cestino
# chmod 755 /etc/cron.daily/cestino

The tricks is '--atime', then if you want still use your command with
find, you can try '-atime' find option.

Hope this help
