Remove Recycle Bin from Quick Launch SharePoint 2013

I am scratching my head on this one. I am trying to remove the Recycle Bin from my SharePoint 2013 Site (Microsoft 365). I have spent hours researching and everything I have found hasn't worked. Example 1, Example 2. The most common solution I have gotten has been adding the following to the Master Page via



When I do, nothing. I have even tried viewing it from someones computer who only has view rights, as I read somewhere that those with Admin rights will always see it. I am still new to
, but have been working with it enough now that I am able to understand it better. Other manipulations I have done have worked without a hitch (hiding/removing Share/Follow from the Top Menu for example). I've even tried deleting the
in it's entirety from the script (highlighted text in image) to no avail.

Does anyone know how to properly remove this?

Finally after months of research I was able to find an answer at this site. The method is inserting the following JavaScript into a script editor web part on each page:

<script type="text/javascript" src="<a href="" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"></a>"></script><span id="hideMyParentsp"></span><script>$(document).ready(function() {  $('#sidebarDiv #hideMyParentsp').parent().parent().hide();      });  </script><script type="text/javascript">window.onload = function(){var x=document.getElementsByTagName("img"); for(var i=0;i<x.length;i++) { if(x[i].title=='Recycle Bin')  {   var dtag = x[i].parentNode.parentNode.parentNode;'hidden';  } }var xx=document.getElementsByTagName("span"); for(var ii=0;ii<xx.length;ii++) {  if(xx[ii].innerHTML=='Recycle Bin')  {   xx[ii].style.display='none';  } } }; </script>
