You cannot directly overwrite items on an SSD because of how SSDs work physically. Instead you need to put them in the Trash, empty the Trash, and then wipe the free space. Because wiping the free space will impact the overall lifetime of your SSD (in the same way as recording a long video) you should do this as infrequently as possible.
