Larry Garcia and George Harrison, General Manager of Gold Coast Recycling & Transfer Station.
Larry Garcia has retired. He served as the Human Resources-Safety Director at Harrison Industries from 1986-1998 before moving over to Gold Coast Recycling Center & Transfer Station, where he has served as Human Resources-Safety Director for the past 17 years.
We’re happy for Larry but we’re also going to miss him a lot. He was a valued employee for three decades and will be difficult to replace. As Gold Coast Recycling General Manager George Harrison put it, “He’s a great guy that my family feels fortunate to have had work for us for so many years.”
Larry said the feeling was mutual. “It’s an awesome company to work for, with great employees. It was a great experience.”
Larry plans to spend his Golden Years occupied with woodworking projects at home and, “learning one song on the guitar.” But first, Larry and his wife Kathy are looking forward to taking a cross-country trip to visit family in Virginia, Pittsburgh and Boston.
How long will they be gone? “No timetable,” he answered. “I’m retired, you know.”
