Trash blowing through wire fence into my yard! (with picture)

It's usually the small things like water bottle caps, gum wrapper, candy wrapper because I'm facing a parking lot. Can I install some kind of tarp barrier or something.

Your picture didn't make it. Is this a chain link fence ?

A tarp or something solid will catch the wind. Maybe attaching some fine mesh netting or fencing to your existing fence is an option.

They make individual slats that you can weave into a chain link or it comes on a roll. Just one example below. Also comes in different styles and colors.

They also make screens/meshes in various heights and widths. Probably more expensive than slats, but easier to install and remove. Fence Windscreen, Privacy Screen & Printed Fence Wraps

Unless the fence is in good shape (not bent at the top or pushed in between posts) the slats can be a royal pain. The cheap ones also don't last long in the sun.

I just did the gates and small sections of fence along the front of this place. It was $35 a box (10LF for 4ft high fence) for UV resistant bottom locking slats. I needed 3 and have about 3ft of spares left over. Probably took me longer to straighten all the mesh and bend the tops back in to position as it did to install all the slats.

A quick Google using Fence Netting came up with lots of hits. https://www.google.com/search?as_st=...tPJezybuqIkkM:

Here's an example:

Although trash is unavoidable in a parking lot the responsibility belongs with the lot owner. Even with the screening there will still be a need to clean up what collects. That's a direction I would pursue as well. You might even get them to buy and install the screening.
