    Try a push behind large leaf blower or one mounted on a bobcat, blow into piles and scoop up or rake up, depending on the amount.
    We use leaf blowers and make piles. One of the club members is a landscaper and has a large blower the attaches to a bobcat and that does a mighty fine job and is quick. plus you can use the bucket of the bobcat to clean up the piles

    We have used a tractor and 3 point hitch blade. scrape them into a pile and then pick them up with a loader.

    We bought a $200 yard sweeper from Walmart and pull it behind a mower. Works great!

    Wads are made of polyethylene, the better wads have polypropylene added to "harden" them.
