Sell the debt to a debt collector and move on.

Usually I won't report the tenants unless they trash the property.

If someone can't pay rent, fine - move on. If they trash the property - then I'm unhappy!

If you are really interested in making a lasting report you could file on them in small claims court. If you win a judgement you probably won't collect but it will go on file and be public record. Other landlords will have access to the info, and if they every do come into money or if they hope to get a loan you might get your money.
