Give them to the happy little worms in your worm composter!
If you don't want them then give them to your gardening neighbors and friends - they will love you for it!
Leaves are one of the best resources you can add to your soil either through composting, mulching, layering (sheet composting), or even just grinding them up with your lawnmower. Leaves add organic matter to the soil which improves the moisture holding capacity and provides nourishment for better microbial activity. Burning leaves in the fall puts, as is a common practice, isn't necessary. Burn diseased plants like your blighted tomatoes but don't burn the tree leaves! Also if you have black walnut trees you may not want to use their leaves. A chemical in the leaves called juglone inhibits the growth of other plants. (Check out this article from WVU on juglone for more info.)
