I have no clue what a wheely bin is. take some windsheild wiper motors and attach them to some 12volt lead acid batteries. You will also need a speed controller www.vantec.com ones would be the best. As for steering just tilit and see if you get lucky.  :D

I'm making a not so educated guess that a wheely bin is a shopping cart.

Haha I looked up wheelie bin on wikipedia.

Here in the US it is called a trash bin!

If you actually want to ride on/in this you will need some pretty powerful motors, I would assume  something internal combustion like the lawnmower previously mentioned, the blade motor would be potentially dangerous to use and  but if you could find a decrepit ride-on somewhere you could basically just hack that to make it work. Theres probably a fair bit of money in something like that though.

I would assume you haven't had much mechanical experience but you would be best off getting an engine from somewhere and just modding it 2 fit. If you go 2 the dump or a wreckers or something you might be able to find a mower or small motor bike engine, I've typically found small engines are hard 2 get hold of but good luck neway!

maybe someone needs to visit the luny bin?  ;D

jk jk

but you'll need at least 5 hp for it. and a frame to mount the motor on.

what kind of budget do you have?

It's shorter to type "trash can" then "wheelie bin". 2 letters makes a big difference on how fast you type you know, lol. :D

Search for "go-kart" or "diy go-kart" that might give you some ideas for steering and such.
