don't know about the hose but the trash bins are "standard" colours, red lid (not pink) is general waste, yellow lid is recyclable waste, like glass and plastic bottles, tin cans and so on.

I don't think they make kits as such, you just buy the parts you need, for such a small motor I would just look for another one.
