That error code means nothing to me either, but there are numerous conditions for an unco-operative trash, some of them quite logical. Browse through the following possiblities in this link.

You could check Apple's article on the topic. Perhaps you have already.

Thanks Roam. I tried all but to no avail.
Eventually I used a tool called Trash It! which did the job (though apparently it is only to be used as a last resort).
http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/8214/trash-it! Emptied the Trash and no problems since.

My solution to this same issue,
I made a folder on my desktop and called it trash
Took all the files in my trash folder and draged and dropped them in that folder on my desktop
Dragged that trash folder back into the trash can
and presto it let me empty the trash

Wish I'd found Trash It! a year ago. I've fussed with this script and that, held down that key, opened this and that - seems like zillions of combinations...nothing worked. Trash It! worked in seconds. I got it from MacUpdate.
