County Waste has partnered with us to honor those in our communities who are truly making a difference.

All throughout the 2014-15 year, we will be recognizing one “hero” per month based on their inspirational feats, work helping their neighbors and every day passion.

This month’s hero is Larry Ozga from Nassau.

Larry has run his own business and workshop, Fast Nail Enterprises LLC, for over 20 years, servicing nail guns and compressors. He has been in the industry for 43 years. According to the person who nominated Larry, he has always demonstrated professionalism and quality customer service.

"He keeps his prices low for his customers and is there to serve them immediately when needed. He drives to contractors' job sites to deliver nails and service guns. Not only is Larry an excellent businessman, he is an extraordinary person. Larry helps his friends and family at any given chance. He would even give the shirt off his back if someone needed it," he said.

"If asked, anyone who knows Larry would tell you that he is an all-around stand-up guy in business and is overall an incredible individual."

Check out our video for Larry and see how you can nominate a hero next month, when we will be honoring local volunteers.
