Where Do Deleted Posts Go?

Posts get deleted but they don't seem to show up in the compost bin.
Sometimes posts disappear from Portland IndyMedia. Supposedly they go to the compost bin. When I go to the compost bin, I don't see anything for 2009. The last composted article I see is from Dec. 31, 2008.

Is the compost bin broken? Are posts just being permanently deleted? Is it something else?
