That's a green wheelie bin, so it was originally for garden waste.
Grey is normal household waste.

They normally don't have front wheels, and I can imagine it being top heavy and quite dangerous.

When I was a kid I lived in a very hilly area (in a non-confederate state lol) we would borrow shopping carts from local grocery stores to use on our paper routes. They were a little hard to push uphill, but going down the other side we could haul ass. We'd plant a Chuck Taylor-clad foot on one back wheel or the other to steer or brake. Fkn almost suicidal when I think back on it LOL

Where I grew up it's pretty flat which made conventional free wheeling go karts pointless.
Bikes were our thing, I had an oval framed red Raleigh Burner with yellow pads, I once went to a BMX race, crashed into another racer (somewhat older than me) on the first turn and somehow got my ankle lodged behind his pedal, he was puzzled why his pedals had stopped turning and started stamping on his pedals (which really hurt) and he realised he'd picked up a little passenger.
