I use garbage tongs to pick the slugs out of my vegetable garden. 30 bucks, various lengths available.

I like what JSS suggested.

Ditto....don't waste your money on a cheaper one. I use the "GG-40" from J Thomas. To make a garbage bag for the trash, I put one loop of a plastic grocery bag over a control stick, and the other loop over my seat adjustment. Using this set-up I never have to get off of the mower.
I also made a very simple holder for the grabber to keep it out of the way and safe from damage...I'll try to post a pic if anyone's interested.

I use one of the grabbers like others have shown on here. I keep a 5 gallon plastic bucket bungie-corded to the side of the zero turn and cut small inverted-"v" notches in the top of the bucket to hold the grabber. The tool just snaps in and out of the bucket that way and stays secure while I'm mowing. I just have to remember to empty it the bucket before leaving a job so I don't litter while going to the next job
