3-yo boy "can't" manage to put away his toys


My son routinely says "I can't" when asked to pick up his toys or clean up a mess he made and he will do everything possible to get out of doing his part! He is very stubborn and timeout, taking away a favorite toy, not being able to go outside, etc, nothing works to get compliance. He is only 3 yrs and 4 months. Help? I need to break him of these words and get him to clean up his toys....Any advice on ways to discipline that may actually work?
