You don't do it from within iTunes. Delete them using the icon on your desktop.
If you delete songs from iTunes and "send to the recycle bin" the track entries are removed from the library and the files are sent to the bin. Should you change your mind and decide to restore the files iTunes won't know about them unless you add them back into the library by adding in the folders they are contained in.

If you have duplicates I'd recommend you read this thread I mentioned in your other thread. It is possible to have duplicates where the same file is referenced twice in the library. If you delete and discard one copy you may find the other no longer works. This is one of the concepts that prompted the development of my DeDuper which should remove duplicates safely.
