The goal of the City's street sweeping operation is to prevent debris from contaminating water runoff and clogging storm drains, as well as to enhance the appearance of city streets. Toward this end, the street sweeping crew attempts to sweep every public residential and collector street six times and arterial streets 10 times each year.

In 2012, City of Leawood Street sweeping crew swept a total of 3,705 curb-miles with over a total of 1,372 hours. During the year, the street sweeping program eliminated about 1,493 tons of debris, preventing it from entering the stormwater drainage system, Natural streams, and lakes.
