I was there in November, there was no garbage and no evidence of the tent city that occurs early in season, so clearly a lot of work goes into keeping the place clean.
All along the trekking route are bins for rubbish and recycling. Probably The Everest Route is cleaner and most places in Western World Ive been to, so overall a tremendous effort.
