How to Restore Items from the Recycle Bin in SharePoint 2016

To restore an item that you have deleted from a list or document library, just go to the Recycle Bin, select the item, click Restore, and then Ok in the confirmation box.
Once restored, the item appears in its original location.

The Recycle Bin link is listed on the Quick Launch bar on the left of the screen. If it’s not, access it by going to Settings and Site Content. If it’s not still, ask the administrator to change the Recycle Bin Settings.

Deleted items stay in the Recycle Bin for a limited period of time, after which it is automatically sent to the Site Collection Recycle Bin where it will do the same.
Only the Site Collection administrator can restore an item from the Site Collection Recycle Bin.
