left over debris?

What do you do with stuff like this? I have a customer who wants me to PW here wooden picket fence. I know some of the paint is going to come off and that's why she wants this done. So she can have it repainted. But I'm wondering what should I do with the paint chips that come off? Any advice how to collect them? I'm not so concerned with getting rid of them as I can bring them to the local town for disposal but it's just trying to figure out a way of collecting all of it that is having me wonder.

Sweep or rake them up is about all i every have done.

Next time if you use a tarp you can prevent that. when the tarp drys a bit as you go by its pretty easy.

I have used plastic but i like resuable tarps better.

At first glance pressure washing sems a quicker way to remove chipping paint. After doing it a bunch of times my opinion is swaying towards efficient scraping. Wet paint chips are a PITA.
