     Myself don't know how to classify this question - stupid or not ? Anyway, just out of my curiosity.
    Let's say there's an infected file on my computer. And being aware of this I just delete this one to Recycle Bin and then empty content of my recycle bin. Would this procedure do the same action like using AV software to delete/clean such an infection ?

    Absolutely not.
