Maybe try putting the garbage bin in a different place just to remind hubby. Also, make it a place that is harder for Murray to get at. We have had the same problem here with the bathroom garbage - Rascal is obsessed with getting out old kleenexes and shredding them. That's not so much a problem as a mess, but he also gets out strands of dental floss. The idea of that wrapping around in his innards makes my heart go cold. So we either keep the bathroom door closed or sometimes the bin sits in the tub! We also continue trying to discourage with "Off!" (our command word for "don't touch it!")
I think eventually he'll outgrow it (not quite 10 months old) as our previous dog also liked to rummage in the garbage when he was younger.
