A sanitation worker in New York, was suspended from his job after a homeowner allegedly caught him defecating in his yard.

Now, the City of Buffalo sanitation worker has been suspended after he was caught defecting in a man’s yard during work.

An official of the Department of Sanitation, said that the worker was caught defecating in the yard on Friday. The officials called it an unacceptable incident.

Sanitation workers are instructed to use bathrooms at fast-food restaurants along their route. Buffalo police were called to the scene on Roesch Avenue.

In March, a garbage collector in Georgia, was shocked to receive a 30-day jail sentence for picking up trash too early in the morning.

Kevin McGill of Sandy Springs, was sentenced to 30 days in jail for violating an ordinance, which states that workers can only pick up trash between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m.

McGill was caught picking up trash just after 5:00 a.m. McGill said that he could not believe when the prosecutor asked the judge for the maximum penalty.

The prosecutor, Bill Riley, made no apologies for asking for the maximum sentence. Riley said that these days, fines do not work.

McGill had been in the job for three months before running into trouble. Now, he will spend the next 14 weekends in jail, as he works during the week.
