I had the same issue, and used the following commands.

  defaults write TeXShop OtherTrashExtensions -array-add "bbl"

  defaults write TeXShop OtherTrashExtensions -array-add "run"

and finally

  defaults write TeXShop AggressiveTrashAUX YES

which seemed to do the trick (although I had to restart TeXShop to trash everything).
