The best solution I've found is to very carefully pull up as many plants as you can while wearing gloves and placing them directly into a garbage bag. If a plant is too big to pull up, then cut it off at the base and kill the stump with either boiling water or a dab of herbicide.

Also see this article for ways to do this:
