Okay, now let's make it pretty...

Thanks so much for the tip. I compiled everything and added an icon and a 5 second timeout:

set amount to do shell script "printf 'scale=2;%s/1024
' `du -sk ~/.trash | awk '{print $1}'` | bc -l "
display dialog "There are " & amount & " MB in the trash. " & return & "Would you like to empty it?" with icon caution giving up after 5
if button returned of result = "OK" then
tell application "Finder"
empty trash
end tell
end if
