Tarp them and carry them on the trailer like a Santa Clause sack and dump them onto a larger tarp laying on the floor of the trailer...when you get to the dump just pull the tarp that is under the leaves to get them all off...if there is a ton of leaves you will want to go something like tarp,leaves,tarp,leaves etc...so you can pull off a more manageable amount of weight at a time.

That is positively the fastest way of doing it - short of having something to tie on to. The layering thing definitely works the best. Then, when your done. you have minimal sweeping to do. Myself, I always used a pitchfork and pushed decent sized bites out of the pile, but that's not as efficient.

Easiest way to get them off if you don't have a dump bed is the load handler,just put the handle on and crank them off,works even when they are wet.Tarp them on,crank them off,bought it for $170 from a sponsor on LS.
