How are we supposed to handle large amount of fallen leaves?

I'm not so sure the decision concerning leaf collection has been thoroughly thought through. I live in a part of the city that has big beautiful elm trees. In the fall, we have had between 15-20 bags of leaves on our front lawn, all from the city trees on the boulevard.

Now we are supposed to put them all in our organics bin ... that we pay for as the home owners ... along with our household organics .... maybe we are supposed to store them in our garage and put the leaves out gradually all winter? Does anyone have any suggestions how to handle this? We have no truck to transport them ourselves. I don't see how paper bags are going to work when they get wet with rain and dew.
