Here's the perfect leaf dustpan.

The polyethylene EZ Leaf Hauler is a modified tarp with the same capacity as five wheelbarrows. Stakes can be attached to hold the tarp in place.

Recognized at the 2007 National Hardware Show and tested and approved by the Good Housekeeping Research Institute, the EZ Leaf Hauler comes in two sizes: 35 and 24 square feet of surface area.

Cost is $29.99.
