Waste

Is there ANY organism I can put in my tank that will remove waste (poop)? I still plan on doing my weekly water changes and everything

if you think the poop is unsightly, get a battery powered gravel vac. then you can clean the poop any time without doing a water change. no living creature is going to willfully eat the poop.

Shrimp are good scavengers. Ghost shrimp might do the job.

No, there is nothing that will clean up fish waste from the aquarium. Even something that would, would produce waste of its own.

I think I'm going to buy some cherry shrimp, although they don't technically eat the waste I'm reading that they will go through it to eat any undigested food

Yes shrimp will do that. They do a great job of cleaning the substrate. But not fish poo itself.
