Best equipment to vacuum lawn small garbage?

I'm trying to vacuum very small garbage in my lawn like candy wrapper, soda bottle cap, cigarette bud etc. I already have a trash picker (google it if u don't know) to pick up big garbage. But I'm having trouble picking up the small garbage, because it's tiring for the palm to use the trash picker all the time.

I'm looking for a vacuum that looks like a leaf blower, but instead of blowing out, it sucks in stuff. Some leaf blowers can suck in stuff, but they generally chop down the stuff which is no good for my case. A stick vacuum is not good too, because I don't like their brush head. I want a stick vacuum that has a hose head instead.

Basically I'm looking for an equipment that is like a stick vacuum but has a hose head instead of a brush head. Because I don't like leaf blower because when they suck in stuff, they chop it down a bit. What would u suggest?

I had a small Craftsman shop vacuum years ago which could be carried around on a shoulder strap.

Take a look at rechargeable stick vacuums, there are plenty that can be used without the brush head.

Unless you are saving the garbage, what does it matter if it is in 1 or 100 pieces? The garbage collection company doesn't care.

Stick vacuum is too heavy for my arms.
Breaking garbage into pieces might damage the leaf blower, garbage arn't leaves.

Now I'm looking for a backpack vacuum. But they are more expensive than canister.

Put a bagger on your mower or get a billy goat yard vacuum. I don't think you're going to find any kind of backpack vacuum that won't shred the stuff, The trash has to pass the fan, which is what shreds it, before it enters the bag.

Consider a walk-behind lawn sweeper.
