Litter by litter, he cleans up the area (and loses weight too)

Litter by litter, he cleans up the area (and loses weight too): It's trash and carry for Hans Svanoe, a corporate butler who's become a one-man sanitation engineer picking up garbage along the Orange Line busway. 'I feel like I'm doing something useful,' he says.

In the beginning, it was about losing a few pounds. Hans Svanoe, 64, would leave his house in Encino at 5:30 a.m. and walk for an hour before driving over the hill to Century City, where he works as a butler.
