Unfortunately, there is no recycle bin feature, from where you can restore the deleted folder. JCR Repository has a tendency to grow exponentially, if not checked.
Alternatively, AEM comes with abundant features that keeps a check that Content is not lost, if Customer is following all the governance options available:
1. Versioning

2. Back Up (Cold Stand By Or simple Content Package Zip)

3. User Administration where users can be restricted to delete pages/assets

4. Archive Folders

So, if you have a back up of your AEM Content, you can restore it. 





This might not be correct answer to the DAM restore. The link added in the post marked as "Correct Answer", refers to an AEM Community question, where in solutions related to Site Pages restoration are provided and not for Assets.
