The safety and welfare of our employees and the citizens we serve are vitally important to Athens. Athens' corporate philosophy dictates that safety and health be part of every business decision including purchasing, engineering, changes in work processes, and planning for potential emergencies. In addition to maintaining safe, reliable equipment, all employees receive thorough, continuous on-the-job safety training. Training is a very important element of our Safety Program; we welcome new ideas and continually review and reemphasize our current safety practices. By discussing our safety and healthy work practices during safety orientation and at weekly meetings, our employees benefit by fewer work-related injuries and illnesses and reduced stress and worry caused by exposure to hazards.

Since our inception, we have given back to the communities we serve through supporting local service organizations, events, and projects. A list of these important organizations may be found at:

Athens' mini-trash-truck is a favorite with children at parades and festivals throughout the San Gabriel Valley. The mini-truck, “Mighty Mike,” in conjunction with the Company’s informational booth, help residents and businesses recognize ways to help improve our environment.
