Shrimp poop just as tiny as their eyeball's.Over time,it just becomes dissolved, or partially dissolved organic matter.
Careful feedings in smaller tanks such as OP mentions, and weekly or by weekly water changes, and the matter is much ado bout nothin.
Likely to have more issues with decaying plant matter allowed to accumulate,and possibly excess food if not careful.
Tried white substrate a few times with fishes and my hat's off to those who manage to keep the sand white over extended periods.

With a few small shrimps however, and maybe feeding them once every couple three days,the sand should not get too awfully dirty from waste created by just a few small shrimp me thinks.
