If you create a new empty library is the Trash folder there? if so run library repair on the original library and see if that brings it back.
You could also try moving out the preferences file if the repair doesn;t work or the Trash folder is missing from the new library also.
See Aperture 3: Troubleshooting Basics for directions for both.
Post back the results in either case.

I created a new, Library. ... It does not have a trash folder either. ...
Is there some place I could have accidentally, unconsiously, turned off its visibality?

I'd doubt it. With weird stuff disappearing in the UI like this, often times dumping the Preferences can get you out of it. Look at the article Frank posted and see if that helps.

Dumping the preferences fixed the problem. ... Thanks.

Thank you. ... I had skipped the part about dumping the preferences from the first email. ... Your message made me reread the thing, and solved the problem.

I was having the same problem, unable to find my trash can. I did everythnig suggested in this post to no avail. Then I discovered if you hover to the far right of RECENT you will see either "Show" or "Hide" "Show" reveals the following, including the trash. I'm sheepish that the solution was so easy but delighted to report that after viewing AND emptying my trash, I gained 55 GB on my HD.
