Companies that put stickers all over the city

Every year I have some company's that advertise by putting stickers everywhere, its ugly and annoying to see it. The city does not seem to do anything about it and I think they should be fined. Does anyone do this? and why do you not just advertise in a paper or put temporary signs on lawns instead of littering by putting stickers on private or city property?

Don't forget to keep the city tidy and neat by helping with the clean up effort, I clean up loose fliers and signs on a regular basis.
Believe it or not most customers appreciate the pamphlets and the stickers and the signs gone.
They don't care what's on it and neither do I, no being picky, clean one, clean all.
Oh, temporary lawn signs are litter, too.
Clean it all up, take care of it.

I've seen people get arrested for this. It's called theft. If someone else puts a sign in a yard and you remove it, it's theft. It doesn't even matter if the sign is placed illegally into the public right of way. It's still theft. If someone puts a flyer into a mailbox and you remove it, it's theft. If someone plasters the side of a building with stickers and you remove them, it's theft.

You'd do best to worry about your own advertising campaign.
