Autumn leaves

hi there

This is a mundane question but it's been keeping me up at night. Hopefully someone may be able to help. I recently moved into a new house in Bergdietikon. The agent pointed out to me several times that it is my responsibility to clear all leaves from the front of the house. I did it the same day in case the neighbours think I'm a slob. I put the leaves in two dustbin bags but now I have no idea what to do with the bags. The gemeinde website talks about what to do with grungut but all I understand is that I can buy a special container and an annual tax disc for the container. I don't really want to do that as my house doesn't have its own garden to justify it. The rest of the website talks, I think, about bundles of grungut but I don't see how you bundle leaves. Lots of the words aren't in my dictionary either. Can anyone make any sense of it?

Other than that, I love life in Switzerland and have found everything else quite easy including registration.

Thanks for your help
