Because the files would have to be moved between partitions and that takes time and risks there not being enough disk space on the partition that your home directory is on.

If you move 2GB of files to another location on the same partition it's essentially instantaneous because it's just changes to the metadata, not data is actually moved, and no additional space is used on that partition. Of you move 2GB files between partitions you have to wait whilst the data is actually copied and hope there is 2GB free on the partition the data is being moved to.

Trash works according to The FreeDesktop.org Trash specification
