Composting is great for some.
Buy stickers from Waste Management ($20 for a sheet of 10) to place on each 30-40 gallon container for pickup. Leaf bags from Home Depot or Menard's work, or you can use a large trash can marked with a large "X" to identify it as containing yard refuse.
Burn 'em!
Note to Renata... Couldn't tell you, as I don't know who you mean. I suspect you feel strongly about a lot of topics...
