Well, in my experience, I have found that if you want something done, you had better do it. I am not trying to be a smart alec, but the city is not going to do much for us.
There are 2 solutions.
1. If you are rich, buy the place and then make it the way you want it to be. (not much chance of that happening for a number of reasons)
2. When you are walking by the place, pick up some of the trash yourself. It isn't fair, it isn't right, but it is our neighborhood. I find most of the stuff belongs to Menchie's, so I return it to them.
