It always helps to have rules and directions posted in the room. Example if they turn papers in in a specific spot- put a highly visible sign there.
However if it is kids that have issues with structure and rules, determine the leader and use his skills to your advantage- picking up papers, staying after a minute to help with anything. Divide and conquer.

I would also suggest coming up with shared expectations with your students and explain the consequences of not following those agreements. We use responsive classroom at my school and one of the big parts of that is having logical consequences for students. This builds mutual respect and understanding.
I would also say that clear expectations and firm boundaries can go a long way in terms of management. Consistency is also important.
