Making a water butt out of a dustbin

Hope someone can help me on this one. My local council has just gone from 'proper' dustbins to wheelie bins, leaving the old bins in place. they've suggested converting the bins to water butts and as I've just this year started growing my own veg, I'd like to do this. Trouble is, I have no clue how to go about it. Do I just leave the lid off the dustbin, let rain water collect in there and use as and when (won't it get stagnant and no good for the veggies in pots?) or should I make it into one of those that takes water from the drainpipe that comes down the wall? Sorry, but completely non DIY-y. Got an electric drill and not afraid to use it though!
