A  New York City sanitation worker has been forced out of his $73,000-a-year job  over accepting a $20 tip.

Lenworth  Dixon, a 25-year-veteran city sanitation worker, received the tip after helping  remove a large amount of furniture and trash from the front of a Queens woman's  home in September while working his route.

Not  only did Dixon lose his job, but he was also slapped with a $1,500 fine.


According  to the city charter, public servants are forbidden to accept  gratuities for  performing any official duty. City rules don’t  differentiate between a bribe  and a tip.

The city's Conflicts of Interest Board listed Dixon's last day  on the job as Jan. 16, the New York Post reported.
