Try to recreate the Trash folder by moving or renaming (do not delete) 
these files and restarting Icedove:

~/.mozilla-thunderbird/profile.default/Mail/Local Folders/Trash
~/.mozilla-thunderbird/profile.default/Mail/Local Folders/Trash.msf

Before doing it, just check the current Trash folder is empty (contains 
no data).
