Sends a SharePoint Online site collection to the SharePoint Online Recycle Bin.

The Remove-SPOSite cmdlet does not delete a site collection from the site collections list permanently. Instead, the removed site collection is moved to the Recycle Bin. You can use the Restore-SPODeletedSitecmdlet to restore a site collection from the Recycle Bin. To delete a site collection permanently, first move the site collection to the Recycle Bin by using the Remove-SPOSite cmdlet, and then delete it from the Recycle Bin by using the Remove-SPODeletedSite cmdlet.

You must be a SharePoint Online global administrator and a site collection administrator to run the cmdlet.
