Concerning the garbage that remains after stadium events, a simple solution is for the police who are already there to issue tickets to people for littering. Once the word gets out that it will cost you $100 or whatever to leave an empty case of beer behind, the problem may begin to resolve itself.

Of course, there will need to be sufficient dumpsters available. Seeing the photos of the volume of litter, I think the revenue that could be generated from tickets might be enough to fund the police for the night.
