Raccoon trouble

We have coons in our backyard and now they are getting into our garbage. I do not want to hurt them but no matter what, they find a way to get into it. Any suggestions on how I can deter them to leave my property alone?

I could do that I guess. It would be pretty simple. I have some wood and it would not take too much. I will have to see what I can come up with.

I would not made it too simple, raccoons are good at opening things up like this raccoon was able to do.
