The problem is that getting into the trash is very REWARDING. And the random "punishment" he's getting is not enough to deter him.
Solution: Put the trash in the cupboard or in a dog proof trash can.
Really, that is the easiest solution. Its not really reasonable to expect your dog to resist the temptation to get into something that smells like food when its available to him so easily.
Also, of course, don't leave food on the counters while you are not in the kitchen.
