Well, Trash It! did not work quite as described, but finally it did do what I needed - so THANKS and a donation is coming.
I had the dreaded 8003 error message when trying to empty Trash on my iMac. Based on positive reviews, I downloaded Trash It! I double-clicked the TI icon and got encouraging messages indicating that my Trash can would shortly show empty (sorry, forget the actual wording), but the Trash stayed resolutely full with about 5000 items – both when I selected Fast and again when I later selected Really Stuck.
I then started taking individual items from the Trash, putting them on Desktop, then dragging them onto the TI icon. Slow, but this worked, and I eventually got brave enough to remove hundreds of items at a time until I finally reached some magical point where I had removed some unknown offending item from the Trash can, after which the Finder's own Empty Trash did its job of emptying trash.
Perhaps not elegant, but success in the end thanks to Trash It!.
