Picking up sticks is easiest with a tarp and plastic fork... leaves I blow into piles along the road way or onto tarps if too far away... you might want to estimate how long it will take you to do an area and give a ballpark price, until you've had more experience... $150.00 for the job sounds better than $30-$50/hr... (I offered a friend $20/hr to renovate the lawn for her and she changed the subject right away... if I said $80 to do it , she may have said yes... and it was probably a 3 hr job...)

If Milwaukee has curbside pickup in your targetted neighborhoods, that would be very simple... so much time and expense getting leaves onto the truck and hauled away...
