Hey they are just leaves, ... they will love you for taking their trash.
Maybe in other parts of the country, this is true.
I didn't want to risk it in lawyer-happy California last year, so DH and I gathered our leaves from public areas only: the verge (aka right-of-way, planting strip, etc.), the curb, and so on. No one's lawn. No one's leaf bags.
We still have one, maybe two bags to go! Thanksgiving weekend was the best time in our little eco-zone.
