Can Gmail delete the trash on my POP account?

Gmail appears to have failed me. AskMe, show me the light. I use Gmail to retrieve my email from my vanity domain via POP. All is good, except for it appears that Gmail does not actually delete emails on the POP account when you delete and trash it in Gmail. Now my vanity domain email account is maxed out with several months worth of deleted email & spam clogging it.

Am I missing something here with Gmail? Do I have it set wrong?
I like leaving my email on my server, so letting Gmail be the only location for my email storage is not a solution for me.
I've considered setting the MX record and letting Google host the mail itself, but since the vanity domain is a family name, it involves changing the account info for other people besides myself.
Should I simply go back to Thunderbird/IMAP? Thanks in advance for your ideas.
