How good or bad does it work in your space to keep it clean and tidy?

Recently I have to yell at people regularly to make them put away their
empty bottles or spend half an our a day to collect these empty bottles and
paper from snacks or whole pizza boxes (sometimes even with alive pizza in
it). Is there a good solution for this?

People very often don't clean the kitchen after using it or just put their
tables on the counter istead of checking if there's some space left in the
dish washer and/or turning it on and/or taking the dishes out and putting
it where it belongs.

We clean the space every weekend completely, people clean up the kitchen,
get rid of old paper and pizza boxes and stuff, but during the week a lot
of people seem to just leave their wast right where they were and leave "in
a hurry". Sometimes the cleaning rage isn't over for 24 ours and the
kitchen looks even worse than before.

Somehow I feel like enough people don't care to mess up the whole place.

Best example: I wanted to use my computer and found it with a gooey
keyboard and mouse. Cleaned it thoroughly. Same thing happened the next
day, this time the mouse ball wasn't working anymore.

I guess shouting, cussing and cursing at people all the time makes the
space even less likable than it's already by being so filthy...

Any ideas?
