I let mine collapse into a squidgy mess Mike!
Not because I stop working in the garden but because I think the old foliage must help protect the plant, create insect hidey holes and I also hope it might help improve the soil since I don't make my own compost.
I only have one garden debris heap and it's mainly logs and twigs and some dried out annuals as I know the hedgehog dragged some into the heap last winter. I have to rely on the brown bin collections also which have stopped now...
