How can I get more garbage/recycling cans in my city?

There is a big area in the city that I live in where there are no garbage cans around. Because of this, the area has a lot of litter that a community group I'm working with cleans up every week--only to be met with new litter every clean up. We were thinking about getting our own metal garbage cans and maintaining them ourselves, but my few worries with that idea is that we would need to raise the funds for quality outdoor garbage cans or the city would get rid of them after we put them out. My thought is that garbage cans are publicly owned, so should I get in touch with the city council so they can make some sort of legislation about adding a few more of them in this area? Or would we be safe raising funds and putting our own garbage cans in the area?
