In the more than 30 years that Larry Stone has worked in the garbage collection industry, he has sold equipment, owned a hauling company, and been chair of an NSWMA state chapter. Today, he is responsible for all of Heil Environmental New York City market, trade show commitments, and sales in the Northeast. During his time at Heil, he played an instrumental role in building a dual compartment rear loading collection truck. Larry began his career in 1975 when he bought a carting company managing two drivers, two trucks, and 230 accounts. Two years later through acquisitions, his company quadrupled in size. He has been an active member of NSWMA and now WASTEC. As the Massachusetts Chapter Chair in 1983, he organized an industry protest by circling the state capital with a convoy of garbage trucks. His effort led to new landfill sitings in the state. Larry volunteers at his daughters’ school fixing soccer fields and participates on the Auction Committee of the Environmental Research and Education Foundation.
