I would either remove the garbage and put it behind a closed door or use a heavy duty bin and lid. While training is great, as you say he does it mainly when you are out of sight. Either removing or securing the garbage will keep him from accessing it when he's not in eye sight

Are you sure you're feeding him enough food? I knew two dogs (not GSD's) that were essentially starved by their families and these dogs would leap tables and counters because they were so hungry. In their case I really couldn't fault the dogs for their antics
