Core Values


Safety is our first priority, the most important aspect of our work. Altiras commits to ensuring the safety of our employees as well as the employees of our customers and service providers. We are dedicated to maintaining a zero-injury workplace. For this reason, we provide training to all Altiras employees in areas relevant to their work environment. Depending on job responsibilities, Altiras employees may have training in areas such as OSHA compliance (40-hour HAZWOPER, HAZCOM, general and specific training), RCRA and state regulations, DOT regulations, Homeland Security regulations, and many other areas.


Altiras strives to lead and motivate by example and consistently live up to these core values. We coach, train, develop, and empower employees to reach their full potential. View our Leadership Team.


We highly value Altiras employees, considering them our most valued asset and the face of our business. We respect and value each employee, committing to supporting and developing each other personally and professionally.

Continuous Improvement

We believe that if you are not moving forward, you are falling behind. For that reason, we have made continuous improvement one of our core values. We will improve results for all our stakeholders by doing the right things better every time.


We commit to protecting the health and well-being of our employees, our customers, the community, and the environment. “Beneficial Reuse” has fast become a popular catchphrase among environmental companies and HSE personnel. The philosophy behind beneficial reuse, however, is what we believe in. The destruction of usable materials due to a lack of knowledge is an environmental failure. The chemicals and petroleum products we invest in possess inherent value. Realizing that value is symbiotic with eliminating waste and protecting the environment.

Resource Conservation

Conservation of resources is always important, no matter what the price of energy products or raw materials. To not conserve resources is wasteful and is against our core values. It takes a great deal of energy to create chemical and petroleum raw materials and finished products. If someone burns or otherwise disposes of those products, they will never realize the full value of the resources. The reuse of industrial chemicals and petroleum products can play a major role in resource conservation.

Product Stewardship and Responsible Distribution

Good product stewardship is the result of a fundamental belief in the value of life and our environment on a global scale. Altiras is very careful to ensure that our suppliers, service providers, and customers clearly understand the risks and proper safety and handling necessary for all products that we sell. We believe it is in our best interest to verify that all parties have the necessary information, management, systems, and practices to safely handle our products.

Ethics and Code of Conduct

We treat every individual in our business with integrity and honesty and require that all employees comply with federal and local laws and appropriate ethical standards as a condition of their employment. All employees must comply with the Altiras Code of Business Conduct.

Quality Policy

Altiras is committed to contributing to the success of our customers, suppliers, and partners by providing value-added products and services that consistently meet stringent requirements. Altiras’ Quality Assurance Process is a fundamental tool to achieve the company’s mission and to focus on customers.
We integrate the Quality Process into all aspects of the company’s business practices. Quality is woven into strategic planning, training, and all the daily activities of our core work processes and the processes that support them. In the Quality Improvement Process, quality means one thing – conforming to and exceeding requirements.
