Solar panel 12V, wiring instructions to a automated trash can

I have a automated trash can which opens up the lid as someone waves his/her hand over it, currently it runs on batteries (6 Dura-cell) , now since getting new batteries every time is making it much more expensive and difficult for me,i came up with an idea of using a solar panel to power my thing, but since i am totally new to the electrical field, i want your help! I feel so dumb while asking this question but google was no help so i need your help guyz!!!!!!!!!!!

Welcome to the forums.

A little project for school.

Is this an inside or outside garbage pail ?
6 batteries is also 9v..... not 12v.

If inside it would be more cost effective to use an AC adapter.
