My town has a garden waste pick up day if it is bagged and curbside. I call it "free mulch day" and help myself.

I've been known to rake my neighbors lawn for their leaves or rake leaves in the woods because once you get a humus rich soil you want to keep feeding it, and putting down layer after layer of organic mulch is sheet composting, which is far less labor intense than turning a compost pile.
