Lee Dixon admitted to shouting, swearing and acting in an aggressive manner towards another man who was part of the same unpaid staff at the Kelso Community Recycling Centre.
Drew Long, the district attorney, said Dixon was involved in an argument with another man over distribution at the center on May 6 last year.
He added: “The supervisor tried to intervene, but Dixon lost his temper and was shouting and insulting, and in the end the police were called.”
“The defendant was frustrated with not everyone weighing them and acted in a way he shouldn’t,” said defense attorney Stephanie Klinskill.
But she noted that Dixon was doing well on another community payment order with only 10 hours left to complete it.
Sheriff Ian Nichol said he was pleased to know Dixon was making progress providing some stability in his life and imposed 80 hours of unpaid work as an alternative to a fine.
Dixon, of Bannerfield Drive, Selkirk, was given six months to complete the work.
